Sorry, didn't knew that ^_^'
Anyway, I don't think that the performance gain would justify the greater 
complexity. In fact, the performance you gain when rsyncing a user this way, 
is lost when an ebuild is submit (the FS must be mounted, the ebuild 
added/modified/deleted and the FS unmounted, all this without being able to 
accept users' requests).
I think that there is not an easy way to get sync operations quicker. Maybe 
with the use of some sort of database.
Instead, it would be nice to have a list of the packages available. The 
ebuilds could be fetched only on merge/update. "emerge sync" would upgrade 
only the list, and "emerge world -u" would send the world file to the server 
which would reply with up-to-date ebuilds.

Would this be feasible?
