By the way, what do you gain by writing

rpath.conn.os.mknod(rpath.path, stat.S_IFSOCK)

instead of just

os.mknod(rpath.path, stat.S_IFSOCK)


To me the longer version seems to _lose_ some clarity.

Agreed -- 'os.mknod(rpath.path, stat.S_IFSOCK)' is simpler and works the same. After 4 years, I have no idea what I was thinking when I wrote it the other way. Maybe I was trying to carry on the tradition of making the inner workings of rdiff-backup difficult to comprehend? :)
