I have reimplemented the previous patch as a normal cache module that adds a writable layer on top of the pre-generated metadata. If you'd like to try this out (with portage-2.1_preX), simply copy metadata_overlay.py into /usr/lib/portage/pym/cache/ and add portdbapi.auxdbmodule = cache.metadata_overlay.database to /etc/portage/modules.
I haven't tested this much, but like the previous patch, this shouldn't cause any harm. Feedback would be appreciated.
