Is this a good idea? Does anyone have experience with this? What brand do you use?
I live in Central California where my drysuit is often too hot unless I'm in the water.

Immersion Research makes a nice one. definitely the most comfortable option since you don't have several layers across your stomach, but there are some downsides: when the top wears out, the skirt is useless (skirts generally last longer), and it's great for surf or playboating, but i don't like the idea of creeking or river-running with it. if you get pinned with something across the cockpit, you can't swim out of the skirt tunnel.
No problem. A drytop mated to a skirt|

may stay dry even if you swim for a bit. But I would prefer to rely on my roll.
dry deck, right?|

Are you talking about mating a dry top to a skirt, or a single garment that covers your torso and also the deck of the boat (I think they're called dry-decks).
Reed makes some similar |

paddling equipment and tuiliks that might work for you. I've been considering this one - http://www.chillcheater.com/aqshop/catalogue.php?id=3083&page=
