Is there a Right Way(tm) or efficient way to locally mask most of an layman-fetched overlay besides the ebuilds specifically desired on a system? The two ways I can think of, manually locking the version numbers in package.keywords of ebuilds you don't want from the overlay or deleting all the ebuilds beyond the ones you want, don't seem particularly scaleable. I looked in the layman documentation but didn't see a way to do this, but I wanted to make sure I wasn't missing anything obvious... thanks!

Well, you can just locally sync overlays (outside portage) and move desired ebuilds into your local overlay (/usr/local/portage). Disadvantage is that you have to do it manually (or you can write a script which "svn up" overlay and moves wanted packages into /usr/local/portage).

Not answer toyour question, but maybe you can see this as a solution or at lest workaround.Temporary add layman overlay that has ebuilds you need to layman. Set up local overlay http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_Installing_3rd_Party_Ebuilds and copy in it ebuilds you want from layman overlay. Delete layman overlay from layman 'layman -d your_overlay'.

edit:
I was a bit late. As easy target suggested it is better simply to fetch overlay (with svn or whatever)somwhere and then to copy ebuilds to your local overlay. So it is easier to update it.
