Just a side remark: I think the idea "Things are in the science overlay
just until they get migrated to the main tree" is outdated. As far as I
understand it there are things in the science overlay that are just
never going to make it to the main tree (binary blobs, precompiled
library QA desasters, etc. can still be useful software).
