no need for a star topology - really!

You don't need a "star topology" - simply because Unison automatically always resolves changes in favor of a newest change (even if a file disappeared on the one side, Unison defaults to deleting it on the other side - of course you can change that), and whenever there is a "contradiction" of some sort, ie when the file has been changed on both sides, it defaults to doing nothing / asking a user. So you can just go all around with this tool, syncing random pairs with each other, simply choosing defaults and still - sooner or later every change will propagate to all the others.
