Juda got a little typo. :)

I won't complain too much. Otherwise peuple will start talking about mine ;/

However, I would avoid /proc, /sys, /tmp and /lost+found

Hint: If you might put /home on another partition, you can easily install or
sync a new system, but leave the user settings. In that case, you should of
course also exclude /home.

I'll keep that in mind.
But you started me thinking about how my use case differs from any normal user.
