Does anyone do bulk builds reusing old packages?

Anyone interested to setup a bulk build that keeps all old packages, only builds new packages for version/revision changes, and always reuses old
matching packages for dependencies?

Maybe setup via cron daily so it would only do new builds of packages that
have new version/revision changes.

This would be useful to catch problems where a dependency requirement was not changed, for example committer has new dependency installed but pkgsrc
allows old one which is not good enough.

Do any of the bulk build frameworks easily/readily support this?

I used to do such bulk builds with the old bulk build framework by setting USE_BULK_TIMESTAMPS=no (see mk/bulk/
