A little hack on that may be handy for keeping your laptops in sync with
the home $HOME directories.  AFAIK you can't do it automatically but a
sync-laptop-from-server.sh and a sync-server-from-laptop.sh script
depending on which way you want to go.  Of course you still run into
problems when you've made changes on both laptop and server.  Actually,
come to think of it, subversion might be the way to go...
