I thought about this when I was fixing an issue with gnome screensaver
and sabayon/xnest in Gnome 2.17, but didn't see any really compelling
reason to do so. As far as I know, the main touted advantage of Xephyr
is that it can use various extensions that Xnest can't (like composite
and damage) and I didn't see how this would improve Sabayon's
functionality at all. 

If there's a compelling reason to switch that I'm not aware of, it
should be easy to do.

I'm pretty sure that's all that would be required, yes.
