Replication will create folders on the same partition at both ends.
You can then rename one and it will still work, but that's only due
to deficiencies in the sync protocol.  I'm planning that in future,
you will need the same partitions at both ends.

Note: they don't have to be on different disks - you could just stick
the partitions in different directories on the same disk!  Wow, 13
partitions is a lot...
