That method seems much less than ideal, and I'm more of just a builder as opposed to any sort of developer. My build system is down for now, and while I have no reservations against building a 4.4 based ROM, Carbon or otherwise, it's still my opinion that it's too unstable at the moment- even Google has had trouble with the factory images, and they just pushed KRT16S which I'd like to see stabilize things before I build something IMO sub-par. Not to mention, as far as I know, most/all ROMs have started from scratch and have yet to add all their customization back on top of pure AOSP. Amit_sen has been cranking out 4.4 builds like crazy, so you can check those out, but as mainly an end-user of custom ROMs, I don't see much that KitKat has to offer, which is why I'm still fine on 4.3 and I actually like holo-blue and the more informative status bar connection icons. Armydog13 has had his eyes on building Carbon for a while, so he'll probably pick it up soon enough. I'm more of a Slim fan anyway, but Carbon is definitely a solid second.
Either way, I'm quite sure you'll see 4.4 Carbon, I just can't say when. Slim or crDroid would be the most similar if you see amit_sen put either of those out in the mean time. If Xposed can't help with multi-user, I don't see it happening since getting my build system back up isn't a priority for me right now.

I should also mention that this will be my first foray into git and compiling ROM do once I get started it might take me a little while to get working build going and learning to add features. But I have a couple devs who have offered me their ear and assistance if I should run into trouble.
Fortunately, you don't need to use git at all to just complete a build (repo init, repo sync, and a few manual/local modifications - ready to build), although knowing enough of it certainly helps and is necessary to do things the "right" way- keeping track of changes, pushing fixes and whatnot. For me, it was definitely easier to pick up after having completed a build and therefore having a bunch of context that I could apply it to, although my knowledge is still very limited. It's quite tedious with a steep learning curve, but very powerful. Compiling is very straightforward- get your sources in order, run make, and it tells you exactly where the errors are, which in my experience so far have been pretty simple to resolve.

if you're any problems with a ROM you flashed- if it doesn't solve your problem, it'll increase your chances of getting help.
