I don't really see the point of ~sci, since the rest of the ebuild will
probably need to get diffed against the regular tree anyway if there are
any changes.

How do you plan to keep this in sync with changes in the regular tree?
How is our own solution superior to getting together with gentopia or
something similar that already exists?

OK, so this overlay is only for new packages, and not for changes to
existing ones?

Thanks,
