well, this thread is certainly becoming more interesting than i
expected it to be.  certainly using git never would have occurred
to me.

there's a very nice file tree syncing tool called "unison" that might
be useful as well -- i hadn't thought of it until peter mentioned rsync.
unfortunately it's no longer under active development, but in my
(limited) experience it works very well:

i'll have to think about whether it would be appropriate in this case.
