/home avoids restoring from backups (I still make them regularly), and
reinstalling and configuring system-wide packages is a pain, but not a
big one.  I also kind of like the new computer "smell" that results from
not upgrading.  It also seems to avoid certain problems.

You're right.  I was being too conservative.  I would do it differently
today, but the remaining 27GB on /home will still last me quite a while.
