I keep mine in a Darcs repository.  I just took a peek and my initial
import was July 13, 2004.

My .emacs.d and ~/bin are also in their own repositories (since right
around the same time, too).  A little unrelated but my .bashrc and
.inputrc and whatnot are kept in the ~/bin repository, too.

I'm horrible about remembering to commit changes anymore, though.  I
have so many commits with a comment like "oops!  haven't commited in a
long time!"

My .sawfishrc is nothing but a bunch of requires.   Very few things in
my ~/.sawfish/lisp were written by me.

I'm nearly worthless when it comes to writing code in anything that
resembles lisp...  I'm crazy enough that my most complex .jl file calls
a perl script that runs sawfish-client.

I used to byte compile everything, but I don't think I'd ever notice the
difference :).

Mine is under revision control as well.  I used to have a script that
flattened custom out just in case I wanted to cherry pick changes.
Enough years went by without wanting to that I stopped bothering.

Over time I've been relying less on custom.  Most of my old keybindings
that I defined in sawfish-ui have been (slowly!) moving into my keymap.jl.

If you've got anything useful in there please don't hide it from the
rest of us :)
