Also can anyone tell me what the little drain tray thing is for? I've never seen one in a manual transmission setup before. Only little cups to keep oil around a certain shaft or seal.
Please let me know if the links don't work, I'm trying to find a decent upload site for pics since the whole debacle with photobucket.

The tray catches oil sling and directs it to a lubrication point.
The crud is pretty typical of what we see in these. Not really detrimental but can be avoided with more frequent changes. It's relatively easy to split the case and clean it if you choose to do so. Change the rear input shaft bearing if you do - those fail all the time on the phase-1 trans.

I should have all my parts tomorrow so I'll have it back up and running under it's own power in the next few days. It's good to know this is somewhat to be expected when opening one of these up. I'm used to nissan mostly.
