I think that having an overlay set up as a high priority collection does
work. Steve S. uses one for his gumstix project. I like this method
because I can easily find all the local changes he makes and see if they
need to move back into .dev.
A local overlay lets you change the version of .dev underneath as
needed, without moving changes across branches. Combined with sane
source rev/dates, I believe this gives the people supporting product a
sane build/support environment.
