I just tried to restore something and got:

  # duplicity --no-encryption \
    --file-to-restore foo/bar \
      file:///somedir/duplicity .
  Warning, found incomplete backup sets, probably left from aborted session

What does this mean?  If it means that duplicity can't restore because
some incremental backup failed, then is there any way duplicity could
scan for this problem and scream loudly the next time you try to make
an incremental backup after a failure.  Better yet,can we arrange it
so that duplicity just doesn't "commit" a backup until it's finished
(i.e. doesn't "mv" the backups into their final place until the whole
backup finishes), and offers to delete (or warns that you ought to
delete) corrupted backups the next time it's run?
