We should have all of SynCE in Portage again, except for the GNOME bits
like synce-trayicon (hardcoded depend on sys-apps/hal) and the KDE bits
(haven't even looked).

Just by pulling synce-sync-engine as well as synce-connector the deps
should get pulled in -> No need for a meta package.

The overlay was, when I last checked entirely uncompatible with the
packages in tree as well as has confusing amount of deprecated ebuilds.
 I would love if someone could wipe it clean so people stop accidentally
shooting themself in the foot with it.

I'll add the synce-trayicon to tree soon as upstream produces a HAL-free
version of it...

And it's up the KDE team to add the KDE bits if they want.
