	I nfs export the src then union mount local filesystems over
	it on all the other machines... (I actually mount it somewhere
	other than /usr/src then union mount that _under_ /usr/src, which
	lets me edit the src tree from  the client machine).

	Give me a 'master' src tree, plus the option to make 'local'
	changes on any given machine when I'm playing around.

	All very low tech, but its simple & works :)
