Is storing it in a queue for later processing also difficult because of
this? I can image retrying a file immediatly would disrupt the pipeline,
but I would guess that the queue idea doesn't give that much problems
with that.

But, it was only a suggestion. I could live without it.

But rdiff-backup skips any file on any system when a change is detected,
right? I would say this is not desirable behaviour.
