Besides, if you know that you need a 'central point of truth' (possibly for more than one person) then a revision system is the obvious way to go. Unison, is geared twards 'point of latest updates and changes between two points'. It scales to a single user better than svn, as there is really no repository to set up and it works at directory granularity. It is also simple (and I mean SIMPLE) to use right out of the gate. At least, in my experience, it took about 5 minutes for me to start using it successfully. If you are worried about revision control, then use an RCS. If you need 'those files to be the same as these files' then unison is a good option.
