packaging layouts

I saw that you can now package a page layout, but not many details. If I package the Contact layout, what will happen when my client installs but has already customized their layout? Will it replace their customizations, create a new layout, merge the two? Ideally, we could package layout components so that they could just add our custom components (like a custom field, button, or VF page) into their existing layout.


Any guidance on how it works behind the scenes?


Any hope of packaging Remote Site Settings?




Clients will end up with a second page layout.  There is no merging capabilities.  If you package a new record type though, then your new layout will be auto assigned to that record type in the subscriber's organization.
