I keep my key rings and related files synchronized across many nodes,
been doing it since the early 1990s. When in doubt I wrap keys and
related files in TrueCrypt disk images and synchronize those instead of
the bare key files (for example: using Dropbox for sync).

I have different keys for work stuff and personal stuff.

I've considered storing the key ring passwords on YubiKeys but, again,
little USB thingies are kind of tedious.
