You need to make sure it is in the correct kernel file for it to stick. But it should stick. You may find yourself needing to occasionally right click the network bar and select the appropriate network after having your computer off for a while. But other than that, everything should stick.
And if I may, this is not really a sabayon issue. If realtek would release a open source driver for this card, then it would work better.
Sorry for not responding. I have a habit of not checking these forums often. After all, why when things seem to work well? lol!
Anyways I went ahead and updated the laptop to loop 3 and I can report that you are correct. Things have changed. These instructions no longer seem to work. For example, I have gotten the ndiswrapper and the driver installed... but it doesn't display in the knetwork manager.
I will continue to look and see what changes need to be made and then update this when I know exactly what to change.

I am glad to report that the Realtek 8187b wireless on my wife's laptop still works in 3.5 final.
Please note that I only updated her loop 2 installation to the final installation. However her ndiswrapper file held and thus she still has wireless with no changes needed on my part.
It seems to me that ndiswrapped in now loaded by default, but I may be mistaken. I do not know if anything needs to be done differently from the procedure I have provided here. Only change I can suggest is using enthropy instead of emerge for ndiswrapper.
Hopefully someone else will report that a fresh install of 3.5 works using this procedure. If ot, I am sure it is only a matter of changing the place to automount ndiswrapper from.
