Interesting, when I make music I would like to have the dot files that
usually should be in /home, in a music production directory, because the
configurations do change for different audio productions and I want to
be able to restore such an audio session by a script.

Fortunately Arch at the moment is my preferred distro, perhaps I'll test
it too, however on Arch there also is the need to compile it:

[rocketmouse@archlinux avlinux]$ yaourt -S rewritefs
error: target not found: rewritefs
[rocketmouse@archlinux avlinux]$ yaourt -S libetc

Note : libetc is unmaintained (both in AUR and upstream). You can use
rewritefs instead.

libetc 0.4-2  (Mon Mar 24 16:51:29 CET 2008)
This package is orphaned
( Unsupported package: Potentially dangerous ! )
