Is it possible to detect and remove orphans within the 'x' mode (as
opposed to 'r' mode, where it works out of the box)?
Stelian's reply to a similar question says it should work:
Yet it doesn't work for me. The files deleted between two incrementals
remain after 'restore -x'. The source code agrees, as the initsymtable()
function is always called with NULL and dumpsymtable() is never called
for 'x', so it doesn't "remember".
Is this feature planned? I think it would be handy to be able to restore
a *subtree* to the exact state it was when the incremental backup was
