What I would like to see in one of the following versions is to be able to
update a backup repository using a list of files to check instead of
rdiff-backup doing all the work.

Currently if you run a backup it's going to go over all the directories and
files looking for changed files which can take a long time. However, lately
operating systems have been having features like inotify and fslogger which
keeps track of files that have changed. This can be dumped into a file or so
that will then have a list of all the files that've been changed.

Just like the include or exclude switch there should be an update switch to
only go over a certain list of files and it shouldn't alter any files/metadata
on the files it didn't check (just copy it over or so)
