I was thinking of Scratchbox -- it can actually use QEMU for CPU
transparency, allowing someone to work on a normal terminal window
without having to fire up an entire emulated OS.

The one thing that is nice about Scratchbox is it lets you
mix-and-match native and cross-platform binaries -- I've used it when
I needed to run some Intel-only tools when developing for ARM.

Will have to look up the Scratchbox documentation more closely to see
if it can be easily adapted to use any root FS images.
