Cheers, that's a nice idea.

If possible though, I'd prefer to not add more dotfiles; the .DS_Store
files annoy me enough!

I'd be happy using a structure like this:

    EXCLUDES="--exclude '**/*[Cc]ache*' "

But even that doesn't work for some reason. I suspect it's some
quoting issue, but I've played around with single and double quotes in
various places, and can't get the damned thing to work.

What I mean by this is that if I manually copy and paste the contents
of the EXCLUDES variable into the duplicity command line, then it
works. It's only when I try and pull these out into a variable that it
goes wrong.
