Most importantly, I have a separate partition for /src, where I do all
(My /home is also separate, as it's NFS-mounted from another box.)
I must be excessively lucky, as I haven't had fatal FS corruption on
either the "/" or the "/src" partitions since I set this system up in
2004 or so.

Let me remind you that you can do just the same with real partitions on
real hardware... :-) Only difference is that you have to boot a
different system instance explicitly for this, while with a VM you
always have to host system running.
