Any reason for this?
It shouldn't cause any merge conflicts as the difference between 'fat' and
'slim' are lines added/removed (I suppose DIST hashes would be generated in
the same form as they are now, so SHA1, SHA256 and RMD160). It's just over-
complicating things imho.
Portage already is aware of scm vs rsync repositories as for instance some
repoman checks are omitted for those scm ones. Therefore it seems correct to
rely on this mechanism and let portage/repoman generate right (TM) Manifest
for repository being used.
