Thanks, that's good to know.
There is a fuse-fs for browsing rdiff-backup repositories [1].
Passing options to fuse is going to be enabled in the next release. With
allow_user set I should be able to mount my config backup as root, but
browse it as a user.

There's also a nice way to automatically exclude filesystems that do not
correspond to block devices listed in /dev. E.g. proc, tmpfs, but also

Haven't tried it yet, but this should work:
  rdiff-backup --exclude-filelist <(grep -v '\(^/dev/\|^rootfs\)' /proc/mounts 
| cut -d \  -f 2 | uniq) \
    <other options>

Best, Andreas
