Sounds interesting. However, sounds like "new version" is an understatement
and what you've got is an entirely new project. Nothing wrong with that, but
I think you might have more success thinking about it that way.

Two questions: 

1) are you planning to better handle renamed files? That's killin' me.

2) Are you aware of Duplicity? <http://duplicity.nongnu.org/>
