Also forgot to mentioned that, overlay is the only place where you can
learn the Gentoo workflow, _before_ becoming an actual dev.
In overlay you can do things like, repoman commit, manifest signing,
package{.use} masking etc. That's IMO invaluable experience for would-be
dev. It's one thing writing about it in quizzes and another actually
doing it.
