What you do is have six pages of bullet points and select a subset of bullets for each job. I do this for my "Relevant projects" section at the end of my resume. In this section I specify, as Brad Jensen requested, exactly what I have done for an employer/customer, including how I used various software products.
A resume can't be customized to one single reviewer's preference. A good resume covers a number of bases. If you have bullet point "accomplishments", this doesn't negate a chronological employment list. If you describe how you used software, it might still be useful to provide a list. Obviously space is limited, but it is smart to provide the same info in different ways, for different audiences.
