Perhaps we could take a slightly different approach. What if we changed our
standard install procedures to include placing /home on it's own partition,
adding a strong recommendation to the state1 and 2 documentation that new
users should begin with stage3 installs, and add a section to the doc for
rebuilding an installation without losing everything? This would give new
users who start with stage3 installs with a path forward if they choose to
experiment with stage1 or 2 installs after the become familiar with gentoo.
Just a thought.
