 Do people often use buildroot this way?  I always make a project-specific 
branch of the buildroot tree and drop any patches directly in there.

 Not that it hurts to have the option of course :-)

 But if many people use buildroot this way, it would make total sense to try 
to implement overlays like openembedded does.
