:-) Keep calm, I wasn't advocating it either.

However, if (by some horrible process of winnowing) it comes down to a
choice between this versus putting the checkpointing into
hot-backup.py or some other external process, then I'd certainly
prefer that this API be available, and that our RA layers call it. We
have to keep repository maintenance stuff as internal and automatic as
possible; the less dependent on external processes and doc-reading
admins we are, the better.

Hopefully we won't have to do either, though, because Solution 1 will
solve all our problems. Now if only the U.N. would approve it.
