An alternative to this would be to have seperate /home partitions but
shared data partitions.
Ex (if you're running 3 distros)
/home X3 (one for each distro).
/home/Documents X1 (mounted within /home for each distro)
Also, I think that distros based on the same thing should be able to
share better. In other words, Ubuntu and Debian Proper should be
able to coexist using the same /home partition better than Ubuntu and
Fedora/Red Hat or Mandrake.
