Like Patrice, I keep my /home directory on a separate partition, so I do
exactly as he describes. My /home/user contents is all on svn
repositories, because I work from several different machines according
to location or system requirements, so all I need to do is checkout the
contents and I'm up to date.

And yes, I probably do need to start looking at git, but this material
isn't public development software, it's just a private versioned
archive, and I can't quite see how to do that in git.
