When I commit a change to my vim configuration, that has nothing to
do with the history of changes to my mutt configuration. Thus,
I prefer to keep them separate, and Git lets me do that. Now I can
share each configuration on git.madduck.net and people can clone
just the parts they want.

In short: because I can, and tools like vcsh and mr and all the
others make it a little less cumbersome.

But if you prefer to use a single repo for your homedir stuff, do
