I also use Unison (actually: unison, Unison is Usenet client) for
syncing three machines over a server which works very well. I'd very
much change to a 'true' versioning system, but every time I tried to
set up cvs, I failed. Just too annoying. I really like to see a
system-wide, GUI-based solution for versioning and synching. Maybe
Leopard and Timemachine will deliever this, who knows ...
