[Duplicity-talk] Restore question

Hi, I've recently started using duplicity and today I'm trying to do
my first restore.  I'm attempting to restore an entire machine.  I'm
accustomed to using tar.  While not technically correct, the
simplified story is I've booted to a CD, partitioned out my disk,
formatted the filesystems and mounted them all and now I'm trying to
restore.  This means there are existing directories within the
filesystem, but duplicity gets angry about overwriting existing files.

To clarify, I have a destination dir /mnt/machine.  Within that are
mount points for /mnt/machine/usr, /mnt/machine/var etc...  If I try
to restore to /mnt/machine, duplicity exits and says it won't
overwrite an existing file.

Here's the duplicity command I'm running (minus --scp-command,
--sftp-command, actual host names etc..)
I can get a collection status, so I know my sftp/scp stuff is working.

duplicity -v9 --no-encryption scp://address@hidden/duplicity /mnt/foo

How does one restore an entire machine with multiple mount points?
