VERY good point.
I can copy all of /etc around between identically configured machines,
edit network configuration items and hostname information and pretty
much know the other machine will work in a data center environment.
Many of the files in /etc can be "pushed" from a central config file so
they're all the same...
/var -- no way. Typically can't do that. And /var/log ? Ick.
