When given multiple items to emerge, does portage start downloading the next item while compiling the current one? If not, can it be done? I think it would be a nice little feature

Amazingly, that thought occurred to the portage developers already: https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-297712.html

It does not. But with the locking in Portage you can start a fetchonly instance first, background it or something and then emerge normally to have it download while compiling.
