It's been done many times before; it never seems to catch on.  My  
personal favorite was Shape (http://user.cs.tu-berlin.de/~shape/)  
which I used for a few local projects in the late 80s.  SCons is  
perhaps the most popular tool in this class (and itself a  
Pythonization of the original Perl Cons; maybe it's time for HCons?),  
followed by Apache's Ant (I don't think that actually caches command  
lines or binaries though), then Jam and successors.
