The idea of having the configs pushed into a more central repo where I
can then pull them to my laptop for reading/grepping/etc is
appealing. And that's something git supports better than cvs and svn.

To be honest, I'm not sure. I've only just started playing with rancid,
and it's pretty complex feeling. I'm not sure I'm going to finish
deploying it, my needs a simple enough that needing to test all that is
less appealing than just writing my own shell script for it.
