swap -- without problems
usr -- I wouldn't since all distros make use of slightly different
etc -- dito
home -- yes
var -- with a lot of care due to "usr"-problematic
dev -- depends on the various kernels, i.e. devfs <-> legacy devs
- where OS/distro-dependend stuff is in, rather not
- user's data like home of course
What do the other think?
