I've been running duplicity for a couple of years now. I create 650MB backup 
files and do incrementals for 13 weeks. I'm not sure how big the largest backup 
set is, but it does take forever to upload on a normal cable connection. :-/

I thought in order to restore to a specific point-in-time you needed the full 
plus all incrementals from that full to the point you want to restore. I don't 
think it's possible to use a more recent full backup with older incrementals.
