I'm aware of the point of thin-Manifests (It's a long time running
conversation), however it seems to be something more to the order of
usage for distribution, in other words, overlays and tree's like
regen2's and funtoo's. if you aren't distributing the tree for user
consumption... then you'll still have to generate full manifests for
rsync, it would seem easy and more space, processor effective to make
it like metadata and cron generation, dev's don't really need them
when hacking ebuilds do they? they're just a security/integrity
measure for end users. I suppose the reason for devs to use them is
they would be using the git tree to update their own systems.
