One solution would be that we combine two cases: my orginal and solution
for Philip's race situation by patch that changes hot-backup.py's command
line arguments count.

If there is additional (optional) argument for backup's dir. postfix, then
the problem fade a way. User could made unique name, and post-commit hook
could give a revision number as an argument, and then backups will have
unique name in the race case.

If I could convince you that this feature is acceptable, I will produce
new patch with good log.

BR, Jani
