Just to clarify. The command I am working on will make a hot copy of a
repository. To do backups a user could wrap copy command in a script.
  For example, to retain the latest 64 copies, like hot-backup.py does.
  This way user does not need to know how to make a hot copy, but it
leaves user free to script the backup any way they want. Well at least
as long as they can make a copy first. :)

Sincerely,
Vladimir Berezniker
