I do exactly that as regular user on a shared shell server.

I haven't used it for a while, so I'll have to take another look at how
exactly. Not today. Try it, I'd say. It's possible. It's a heck of a
hack, but it works, and it's fun! :-)

It avoids the drawbacks mentioned by Ludo', except for the lack of hard
build isolation: I just used --disable-chroot to side-step the build
user group issue. There may be ways around that too.

Good luck,
