I originally did this on a system that only had /, /home, swap, and
Windows as partitions, so /home was the only choice. Most distros now
will set up a separate /boot partition by default, and I typically add a
separate /var partition too.
All this was just an answer to the question "why would anybody ever want
to boot from /home". I don't claim this is the optimal setup.
