Hah, cool :-)

I took it one step further though, and wrote a Stow plugin for mr.
This is linked from the Stow home page:

So mr serves as a unified interface for not only my git-managed
configuration files, but any other software I install in my home

git-annex repositories which contain all my important data for work
and play (photos, videos, music, etc.)
