From my point of view use case is valid. Not sure if I got it correctly but imagine scenario (that is quite common for me when I use dropbox, I'd consider similar to work for syncany too).
1. install fresh ubuntu distro on PC (let's say PC name is 'xyz')
2. install dropbox/syncany
3. due to new ubuntu release, let's loop and start with step 1 again

Would in such a case my files not be synched back to my PC? if so, I think this would be a show stopper for me with usage of syncany.
