I'm gonna have to run through the installer again then, because I don't remember seeing it automatically ask me about /home, and if you were doing it manually and didn't specify a mount point for /home and didn't format / then would anything actually happen?

If you specify_not_ to format / then home is left as is.  I have just
used this myself to install 10.10 over 10.04.  Back up anything
important anyway of course.
