Yes, makes sense to put this into another application/server. BTW, did
you modify your BootScript to mount your non-boot partition with the
home folder and then made sure the boot partition contained the correct
link (before starting any servers that read settings)? Or was this more
complicated? I may adopt this scheme, since I am re-configuring my
system a bit too often. :-)
