Hmm, but the current system has 4 partitions: /boot / /var and unfortunately not all dynamic data is on /var :-/ I can of course move the remainder to /var as well, and use a bunch of symlinks, but I'd rather leave it where it is... The possibility of using drbd on the root-partition as well would also make it easier to keep both nodes 100% in sync when it comes to Gentoo updates...
