[PLUG] SSD & HDD Partition Plan Suggestions

I'm planning on upgrading my desktop system to add an SSD and am looking for 
suggestions from this august group to maximize system speed.

My current plan is to:

- Buy a ~60 GByte drive (seems to be the price/capacity sweet spot)
- Partition the SSD for / & /boot
- Partition the HDD for /home, /var, /tmp
- NFS for my /docs, /music, & other data files

Does this sound reasonable?  Anything else that should be forced to either the 
SSD or the HDD?

BTW, Since the SSD is only 60 GBytes, I expect it to become obsolete long 
before it wears out, so I'm not so concerned about limiting the number of 
writes to the SSD.  Therefore, I'm planning on continuing to use a journaled 
file system on it.
