Well, I would use one .emacs on all systems, but include some COND stuff
to let the .emacs decide which parts are appropriate for the current system.

And of course all my important .emacs, .emacs.d/ and other settings are
stored in a mercurial repository. On a machine I haven't used for a while,
        hg pull -u
gets all the latest files before I start work. If I make some changes to
the local .emacs,
        hg commit
        hg push
makes the changes available to all my other machines.

SCM this easy has all sorts of uses :)
