        However, SafeKeep uses rdiff-backup under the covers, it is just we 
have spent a lot of time trying to optimise the options that we pass to 

    I guess I can scratch that off my todo list, then.  I find it astounding 
that anyone would build a new tool around a product that has been unsupported 
for over 7 years now.

Mostly because the alternative to rdiff-backup are worst. Even if rdiff-backup 
has some bugs, is old and stagnant, it's more robust then many other backup 
tool for Linux. We did our homework here and rdiff-backup was the best tool for 
our needs.

Those are exactly the reasons that I continue to use it, despite its faults.
