I installed DrScheme 200 back when I was still running 10.1.5, and it
continues to work just fine under 10.2.

I would definitely try at least that, if not actually rebooting; if that
doesn't work, I'll try installing 202 (I mean to do that eventually
anyway) to see if that causes any problems.

It may or not be possible to do what you suggest, but I would still
recommend keeping a list of things not in your home directory that you
want to back up; it strikes me as inevitable that there will be such
things, no matter how configurable everything you install turns out to

If nothing else, you might try putthing them there yourself, and then
either creating a symlink (alias) from /Frameworks to ~/Frameworks, or
creating symlinks for the individual files.
