Allow to save user files to dropbox or as a gist

It would be awesome if the various user settings files could be stored as gist on github. That's what I'm doing now (keeping a copy of those files on github), but it would be awesome if I didn't have to periodically apply them to all my machines.

It could be done for example by putting a file in ~/.sublimetext on Unix systems (and a similar place on Windows) for example. For github, user's API token (or whatever's needed) could be stored there and ST2 would go then ahead and read/save files from gist.github.com instead of the local FS.

Those who'd like to use this would then only need to copy that one file to their machines and get the benefit of having shared settings.
Here's how I keep my ST2 settings: https://gist.github.com/1270795
It works great, I just need to keep manually applying them to all my machines...
I keep them in my Dropbox and symlink them into the Sublime folder.
Good idea. Doesn't work for Windows, but I don't care about Windows right now (although I started using ST2 on Windows...). Good solution for unix systems, thanks.
I can confirm this works. I kept my work and home Sublime Text 2 folders synchronized using Dropbox and an NTFS junction as described in the above link.
