<devils_advocate>If Cinder's backup facilities already do most of
what you want from it and there's only a little bit of development
work required to add the missing feature, why jump to implementing
this feature in a completely separate project instead rather than
improving Cinder's existing solution so that people who have been
using that can benefit directly?</devils_advocate>
