The general idea is not so bad. Why don't you write a script that
implements this and does the multiple compiles. Then, you can check this
on your own system with new versions and report the bugs you find to
Linus and the list?
I think managing the patches, coordinating the releases, planning the
future development, etc., are more than enough for Linus to do.
