Taking vesion bump as an example:

1) Current workflow - user attaches ebuild/diff to bugzi, you `bugz
attachment` it, do all fixes, commit to tree or reject entirely, leaving
a comment on bugzilla. Sometimes it's possible to interact via IRC.

2) Overlay workflow - user issues a PR, you can comment on per-line
basis that stays with the code (and can for example later serve for
creating "common mistakes made in ebuilds"), you can patch ebuild on-the
spot and request user to take it back and test it, etc. The history of
changes stays behind in an easy accessible place.

I'd compare 1) as doing vcs as adding current date to filename, and 2)
as doing vcs with vcs :)
Additionally 2) gives you nice web UI and some users find it appealing.

Cheers,
Kacper
