	My opinion would be for /system/distribution, /system/local, and
	/home.  But, ouch, /system/distribution is essentially the
	present /usr!  (While /system/local subsumes the current
	/usr/local, which isn't used that much, anyway, and /etc and

	The motivation is that it's much more important to backup
	/system/local (/etc, /var) than /system/distribution (/usr.)

	As for dpkg(8), we could have both /var/lib/dpkg/packages (with
	Package:, Version:, and everything modifiable) /and/
	/usr/lib/dpkg/packages.d (with the full descriptions.)

	I'd argue that /boot is to be left in place, for I like to think
	of bootloader as /not/ belonging to any particular system
	installed on box.
