So what we are trying to avoid is always copying data from the client
to the same blocks on the server's HD before copying to tape?  We want
to copy to random blocks on the server each time so we aren't always
stuck with the same bad blocks?

And you don't try to maintain a special (rdiff-backup, rsnapshot, etc)
repository on tape, you just keep recording full copies and changing

We can't just use fsck on the HD to check for corruption?
