Comment(by ciaranm):

 Multiple distdirs definitely isn't going to fly, since it would require
 substantial ebuild changes.

 And no, symlinks are in no way transparent. Hardlinks pretty much are,
 except if you go out of your way to look for them, but symlinks alter
 behaviour of all kinds of things.
