I don't know if this has been done before, but here's a level I made: zetirax

It will fail to produce any output for F (the random barrel that is)...

Solution for all but 0000:

Here's a machine that converts the output barrel to binary crates: duxipyf
And here's a modified version that solves the puzzle for every output barrel value: gixyfob

Edit: added the second solution.

I just looked at Werbad's solution, and it is really cool! It does the same thing as mine in about  a half the space. It'll fail on 2 though. Wink

It seems that the level produces 0100 for both 2 and 4... I won't bother fixing it since the level fails at F anyways.

Yes, I fixed mine because I wanted to see if i could eke out enough space to fit in a component to compensate for that. It turned out to be fairly simple. Had my solution been as compact as yours, this would have been trivial, and I probably wouldn't have bothered.
  Incidentally, fixing that problem in the puzzle part of the machine is as simple as this: tumubav. Getting it to work for f barrels without being significantly bigger is a bit too challenging for my current state of mind though.

Solved: xyburol (I solved Werbad's fixed version)

Werbad, would you please warehouse your version of the puzzle?
