Fine.

Good.

I think this is fine too.

Not only acceptable but necessary ;)

Go ahead.
Another option: Try to get access to the perl-overlay (yuval or ian are
the devs you have to ask to appove it). Put your ebuilds in there and
ask us to move them to gentoo-x86.

Looks fine.
If the perl modules are needed they will be added to the tree, so you
only have to write proper ebuilds.

Thanks to you.
