It looks as if rdiff-backup thinks I want to restore rather than a

could temporarily move the rdiff-backup-data directory before I
perform the offsite backup then move it back it after I'm done but
that seems hacky.
I do this by keeping my rdiff-backup repos in a container directory:
then for offsite backups, I backup machinename.
this also allows more jobs per machine (maybe for data and OS etc)
