I think we all agree on this :)

The current baselayout is there to fulfill a different purpose than what
Gentoo-embedded aims for. There is a lot of overhead and bulkiness with
the current baselayout for an embedded project. Just think of the
dependencies it has on gawk, bash, and some other stuff. Also I am
wondering whether the current init scripts are too much for an embedded
system. Maybe a much simpler init system is needed for embedded. Dont
know.

What I think this project should aim though, is to somehow categorize
and have subprojects which in turn each of them would require different
sets of baselayout (full, lite), libc (glibc, uClibc/dieltlibc), etc... 

Regards, 

Vano.
