The toolchain could fairly easily be shared with the external toolchain
stuff we now have.

I don't know about your targets, but for the configurations I'm using,
the time to rebuild userland packages is insignificant compared to
toolchain building.

This is ofcourse less true if you need to build something big like
X/gtk/Qt/..

 Hans-Christian> I do however also like the KISS aspect of Buildroot.

Yes, it does add quite some complexity.

Keeping status quo and renaming directories will just lead to more
confusion imho.
