yes assuming you always backup /etc completely and your backup repository 
incidentally is located in an etc folder on your ftp.

usually users do :)

the way you wrote above. assuming you backup the folder /home on your box to an 
ftp space containing the folder /homebkp 

you backup like
duplicity ... /home ftp://user:address@hidden/homebkp/

you restore like
duplicity ... ftp://user:address@hidden/homebkp/ /home

you verify like
duplicity verify ... ftp://user:address@hidden/homebkp/ /home

where ... is some more parameters you probably will like to add.
please read the manpage, section 'Action'

if you want to limit verification to a specific folder or file use the 
--file-to-restore parameter. check it's documentation in the manpage. same goes 
generally for all duplicity commands.

.. please try to rtm next time.. ede/duply.net
