I can't see how to do what you want except the slow way, but I also don't understand what you are trying to achieve, or why you want to restore past increments.

As far as I can see attic (if that is your preferred choice) doesn't keep prior versions of backed-up files (or deleted files). I would have thought you either keep your old rdiff-backup repository in a separate location and start running attic to a new repository, or accept that you are losing the old history (and, temporarily, your current backup), wipe your rdiff-backup repository and use the freed-up space for your new attic repository.

Did I miss something?

For various reasons I decided that I want to migrate off of rdiff-backup
to a different backup solution (currently thinking of attic). My current
plan involves restoring my backup at each of the increments and then
checking those increments into the replacement backup system. My
preliminary testing has shown that a lot of the time (nearly 3 hours) is
spent restoring those increments, and that that cost is paid for every
increment. So as to not confuse the replacement backup system I've been
restoring on top of the same destination directory. To that end, is it
possible to do an incremental restoration, where only the changed files
between two increments are restored?
