Before I switched from rsync to cvs I used metadata_overlay all of the time.  
Andrew Gaffney has also reported good results with this module.  He share's the 
portage tree (including pre-generated rsync cache) via nfs and uses 
metadata_overlay on all the clients so that they pull pre-generated cache on 
demand.


Yep, still going strong through _pre6-r3 on multiple arches.
