Useful places I've removed (via "Keep"'s UI around Rsync) include:

  ~/.adobe/Flash_Player/AssetCache/
  ~/.beagle/
  ~/.mozilla/firefox2/XXXXXXX.default/OfflineCache/
  ~/.mozilla/firefox2/XXXXXXX.default/Cache/
  ~/.kde/cache-HOSTNAME/
  ~/Music  (local copy of external drive content... plus we have all the CDs)

I haven't poked around much more.  Anywhere else that'd be good to exclude?

Thx,
