My current scheme is:
/home the rest
from there, I symlink /usr/local to /home/usr-local
and I really ought to set up a cronjob to sync /etc to somewhere on the
home partition too.
Not sure if this is optimal, but my "upgrade" from 7.1 to 7.2 by
installing over the old root was fairly painless. I ended up having to
re-add all the users and chown their home directories though.
