Thanks for the reply.  After taking a few days to painstakingly sift through 
all my data, I feel like I may be able to separate out the parts that are 
appropriate for rdiff-backup.  (Mostly mail files in the mbox format, and a 
couple other large database files for various apps.)  My current plan is to use 
a "dumb" solution for the overall snapsot - probably just stock rsync, using 
the --backup and --backup-dir options, and keep that master snapshot in the 
snapraid-protected area.  The excluded mail/etc files I'll just rdiff-backup to 
a non-snapraid disk.  Reassembling the whole thing in the event of a full-drive 
failure shouldn't be too hard.  I figure it's a good idea to do the simple 
thing first, and then let actual experience teach me which files belong under 
which scheme.
