Oh. okay.
It still requires about 100MB of download for initial setup, which may be 
not nice for many users. It should be possible to start up from CD-Rom...

Hmm... Okay.
I was hoping to get the mail interface of wanna-build to interface with 
pbuilder somehow, but not got to it yet.

You can probably get pbuilder to do the debootstrap creation.
That's the part pbuilder seems to do best.

Other parts are not much of interest, I think.
Both of them are small applications.

Making pbuilder to use sbuild instead of pbuilder-buildpackage for 
building and build-dep checking might be an interesting challenge.
