I'm a Gentoo fan myself.
But you're talking about a whole new project here. Packaging all the
OLPC technologies and packages. Breaking many field-deployed
processes. etc.

The steps I outline above will (I believe) result in a usable OLPC OS
distro similar to what goes out to the field today.
To use any other OS, a lot more work is needed before you end up
something which can be used at scale.
