One option is to have the symlink in the other direction: make
/etc/foo a symlink to $GIT_WORKTREE/foo and version the later.
I do that for the software that supports it, but ssh, for instance, is
very picky that ~/.ssh is a directory and such. And at least one of
the other files I version-control will be unlinked and overwritten in
such a way that that does not work.
I could split the repo up (that seems to be what "vcsh" is doing) and
check the parts out in the corresponding directories, but I do like
the idea of having one single repo.
Oh, well, if I have the time, maybe I can come up with a patch. There
is already some hacks in the "core.symlinks" setting, so I guess it
should be possible.
