Maybe add --incremental-or-force (or some similar name) as an option.
It will, if the format/fs-type/db-format do not match, fall back to
doing a full blown hotcopy backup instead of incremental.

But it's a 'nice-to-have' and not 'required' because things changing
like this tend to be a once every 2-3 years thing. So we just work
around it.
