I dunno dude, this is actually something I've been thinking about a fair bit
since leaving Sunny Birmingham. It came from roughly the same concern: won't
boring file synchronisation be relatively pointless and arse (aside from the
goal of having configuration sycned)?

Then I thought about potential collaborative systems around dotfiles and the
possibility of doing a similar thing around more structured/secure data like
~/.ssh... Needs more thought -- since leaving Sunny Birmingham I have mostly
been stuck on planes and trains -- but there's room for something cool here.

   It makes perfect sense. If you're a narcissistic arsehole spawned from
                            a curdled gene pool.
