(Veering off topic, sorry...) I use and recommend Unison, a file
synchronizer (http://www.cis.upenn.edu/~bcpierce/unison/). It works
great and has both a text mode and a nice graphical mode (optional).
It synchronizes files in both directions. If there is a conflict, it
can be configured to use Emacs to "emerge" both files--sweet! I use
it for many `standard' files such as .emacs, .profile, etc.
There are many ways to set it up, but one way that works for me is to
keep the real files in one subtree ($HOME/uni/) and create symlinks
from other places to the files under $HOME/uni. (One gotcha: if your
~/.emacs is a symlink, then M-x customize will not keep the symlink:
it creates a normal file and you have to move it back into the ~/uni/
hierarchy and recreate the symlink.)
