Uh, I suppose I could explain what it does huh :)

In the hot_backup.py script as it is now its assumed that not only is
the script run every commit but also that it finishes before the next
run. So, for those of us who run it nightly or for those who run it
every commit but the commits come too fast then we get old backup
directories left around.

The patch I forwarded examines the directory, obtains a list of the
directories to keep, and removes all the other directories (making sure
we only touch our directories and not the backups of another repo in the
same directory).

I've been running it since the 14th backing up multiple repos into the
same directory and have been happy with the results.
