Easier than...? In a distant past I had a separate /home filesystem, but 
a couple of times I was tripped up with incompatible dotfiles.

It really depends on your use case. I still distro-hop a bit, and 
usually have two or three alternate root partitions on the primary 
drive, with a /home on each. It's no big deal to copy any relevant stuff 
to a new /home, because I still have the old /home, and because the 
balance of the drive has my personal stuff, in a separate filesystem, 
mounted on /data.
