I also use gentoo, and choose to prioritize ebuilds over source  

Although the above is true, sip/PyQt/PyKDE installs are very clean  
and easy to remove. I use snapshots at will, knowing that I can  
simple install an ebuild over them, or manually remove them fairly  

Go for it; stay bleeding edge.
