In January I got sick of keeping multiple UNIX environments in sync (aren't Macs supposed to reduce my need to ever touch UNIX?) so I hacked up a method for keeping them in sync via Subversion. I've been running it since, and am now making it publicly available to people who love playing with fire. If you're interested:

Sheepdog is a system for managing shell .files across multiple UNIX machines so you can keep a fairly consistent environment (paths, aliases, etc) across all your machines while still keeping machine-specific customizations.

If you try it please drop me a line and let me know how it goes.
