After reading the obnam documentation I think a combination of 
1) several rsync-linkdest backupslots (for easy accessability) and 
2) an additional obnam repository (for more generation flexibility while at the 
same time preventing nearly all drawbacks of rdiff-backup mentioned in this 
might do the job for everyone of us.

I'm gonna give it a shot and report back if I experience major caveats.
