This is certainly a reasonable solution. The only problem with it, is
that, as far as I can tell, you have to check the files in before you
move them between machines, which might be an artificial boundary in
the work. I tend not to version papers, and other human readable files
that often, and with source, I like to only check in when something
has been completed. 

Still it's a possibility that I will consider.
