[rdiff-backup-users] Modifying target dirs

My backup script will attempt to create a LVM snapshot if it can on the
remote server, to ensure data integrity while rdiff-backup is being run.
If the snapshot can be created, it will be mounted in /media/snap, and
rdiff-backup will be told to backup that directory.

However, this creates backups with all our data preceeded by this extra
/media/snap path, which is slightly annoying. Is there any way of
backing up this directory, but then excluding that part of the path from
the snapshot, either at runtime or via post-backup manipulation of the
backup directory?
