In-Reply-To: <2013-01-21T12-04-57@devnull.Karl-Voit.at>

I am a huge advocate of using org files and literate programming in your
config files.

A few reasons why:
  - Makes it easy to logically group sections of your init and
configuration
  - Agenda tags search on your initialization file?  Yes please!
Extremely useful for those "cross-cutting" bits.  I have tags like
"keybinding", "osx" and "linux", and working on others as appropriate.
  - Add TODOs to your init file.

Here is my example, but I stand on the shoulders of giants:
