Do we have a dedicated py2 overlay? Renpy has quite some py2 deps,
so it will be reasonable to support it in such overlay instead of
duplicating job for common packages.

The sense I see:
1) it will make it easier to update to 8.0;
2) for users willing to use renpy it will be a starting point,
though they'll need to setup py2 outside of portage somehow, maybe
using pip.

But maybe it will be easier for users to use bundled renpy from
games (it often comes with its own py2); though not all games have
linux port — that is the killer feature of the in-tree renpy
