Well, adding ~/Documents, say, to the list of things to be synced is a
one-time activity. From then on, all documents you edit will be
automatically synced when you save them. (I don't consider saving them
an extra activity since most people save most of their documents anyway.)

But if you invoke a script to do the syncing, then you have to invoke
that script every time after a save.
