    That's true, but nothing says you have to wait until there's a disaster
to do a restore from backups. You can put in a practice of bringing a backup
repository up-to-date every week with the prior week's changes. That way,
when you have a disaster, you only need to load a week's worth of revisions
into the backup repository to get back up and running. Maybe 15 minutes?

    You could even have two backups repositories, one BDB and one FSFS, if
you're paranoid about either format.
