Here's an idea that I find very interesting:
Use Aboriginal Linux[1] to provide a minimal cross-built environment
for QEMU (or real hardware) which is capable of doing native building
(already available). Then teach Debian to bootstrap itself from this
minimal environment (libc + shell + make + gcc). Aboriginal Linux
currently has a control-image Linux From Scratch (a disk image with
automated build scripts running on target/QEMU). Now it only needs a
control-image for Debian :-)
