I think this will help make diskless workstations also more maintainable. In this case you can have a master tree that you keep patched and then have your subtrees which are then exported to each workstation. You can patch the master and see the patches show up cleanly in the multiple workstations without having to patch each workstation. (Except for files in the workstation that are not shared :)).

Well, yes and no. You still need some extra hacks to make package post-install scripts get everything right in all of the /etc sub-directories for example. But you're right, this could make the process somewhat easier.
