That looks interesting, thanks for pointing it out. However, I'm not
ready to give up on using duplicity for this yet. Duplicity does 90% of
what I need to do -- and I know that it's stable and reliable. (Nor does
it pull in haskell as one of its dependencies. :))

The only part that's missing is using publicly available backup data to
efficiently synchronize multiple mirrors.

I'm working on a summary document that would outline the benefits of
this solution and list what would need to be done to make it work. I
also have confirmation from the Linux Foundation that we can at least
partially sponsor the development of such feature in duplicity --
perhaps by seeding a kickstarter fund (hint-hint, devs).
