(a) As Jeremy said, this is something pkgviews tries/tried to do.
(b) This is a *huge* maintainance hassle.

It works for Debian using the 1000 monkeys approach, but it doesn't work
for a reasonable large (as in: small) team. E.g. keep in mind that it
means splitting a single package into small pieces for the static
libraries, header files, associated programs etc., as everything but the
