Introducing: Semantically reproducible builds

Hi David,

Thanks for sharing this.

I think that the problem with this idea and name are:

- That it does not allow two or more people to share and confirm that
they have the same build of some software.
- That it does not allow tests to fail-early, catching and preventing
reproducibility  regressions (semantic or otherwise).
- That the naming terminology conflates with true reproducible builds,
therefore creating the potential for misunderstanding to consumers.
