[vox] A philosophical question about partitioning

Someday, I keep telling myself, I'll be rebuilding my file/print/mail/web 
server at home.  Right now the server holds about 10GB of MP3's (all of them 
legally obtained; my wife and I just compulsively rip every CD we acquire).  
Right now, all those music files are living in a directory called:


At the time, it was the only thing I could think of.  That directory belongs 
to a group called "crawford" so that both my wife and I, who belong to the 
"crawford" group, can access it.

When I rebuild this server, I'm going to put all of the /home directories on a 
separate partition.  I wonder if it makes sense to have all of the music 
files on a separate partition of their own, and, if so, how should I mount 
it?  Does /home/music make sense, or is there a better way to do it?  
Strangely, none of my resources seem to address this question.
