These two are directly connected together.

I've already coded some basic support for Thin Manifests in my
newly-created Portage branch. The branch itself can be looked up at:
http://git.mgorny.alt.pl/portage/log/?h=git-repo

And the particular commit I'm mentioning here:
http://git.mgorny.alt.pl/portage/commit/?h=git-repo&id=2b77f313b89b84dcc04299b83ef9ecfd73318cd6

I've did as much as I could without getting more information, and
turning everything around. What it can is:
1) Detect '.git' and enable Thin Manifests (only dirty check),
2) generate Thin Manifests with only DIST checksums,
3) merge ebuilds with Thin Manifests.

I have tested it against a random kde-sunset and x11 overlay ebuilds
(the former having DIST checksums, the latter being empty). What we
don't (I guess so, I haven't checked it) support now is non-existent
Manifests. Are we supposed to support them, or should we always
generate Manifests, even if they will be empty?
