If ~ is /home/me, then one alternative is to employ /home/me_a and
/home/me_b, where only one contains files to be backed up. It is not
necessary to useradd me_b. The files are just moved, and still owned by
your original accouunt. You just have a home, and a garage. ;-)

It is neater to reserve / for system stuff, wouldn't you agree?
