I think we can try to do both and see which one is the best method and I
guess dump the worst method. Right now I dont think it is easy to see
which one is the best method (unless there is someone around who has
experience in tweaking Gentoo for embedded and can let us know).
Maintaining a simple stripped down baselayout-lite should not be *that*
hard since I guess it would be a rather small and simple package (I dont
know why I keep on thinking of simple rc files ala slackware all the
But on the other hand, having a script which strips/modifies the current
standard baselayout also seems interesting. But this depends on how
often the main baselayout goes through drastic changes (which is not
that often iirc).
So my vote is trying both methods and see what results we get.
