this is the one big problem that faubackup still has: it's slow.
all data is copied first, and then compared to the last backup.
that way, incremental backups last as long as the first backups.
i have some plans to use rsync --compare-dest or similar to speed things
up, but atm there is no easy way to do that.
perhaps librsync could help, but i havent worked in that direction
