BackupPC version 1.02 has some significant improvements and a handful
of bug fixes:
* A new script BackupPC_tarExtract replaces tar for extracting the
smbclient tar archive. This reduces disk writes by perhaps 90-95%
and disk reads by 50%.
* Locked files on the client that can't be read by smbclient are filled
with 0x0 bytes by smbclient, meaning tar extracted a useless file
filled with 0x0 bytes. Now, BackupPC_dump watches the output of
smbclient and removes any files that smbclient couldn't read, and
tries to replace such files with a hard link to a previous dump.
* The framework to support file compression is in place, but not complete.
Compression will be supported in the next version.
