qtwebengine compiles quite a bit of chromium inside, is there any project that exploits this to only compile the bits of the chromium browser that are not in qtwebengine? it doesn't make any sense to compile those beasts twice with such a large intersection.

There is no way to do that, but maybe you want to try Qupzilla, soon to be known as Falkon, which does exactly that (except not being Chromium).

Qupzilla is my main browser, however it lacks plenty of features that Chromium has. As for the first part of your sentence: there's no way as in "there's no ebuild available" or there's really no way. I guess it may be hardwork, but I don't see a reason why it's not possible to bundle a package that builds chromium against the already compiled object files in qtwebengine's tree.
