I have been looking into using benji-backup[1] in a cinder-backup driver[2].

I have not tested it thoroughly enough yet, but both in devstack and in 
a multinode setup.(focal victoria).

On devstack I get a newer sqlalchemy that satisfies Benji's requirements 
list. I have not found issues with downgrading Benji to use an earlier 
version of sqlalchemy found in canonical focal repos. But that also 
needs some testing. I asked the author of Benji why he chose a version 
as high as he did.

So just a little info about this work. Any comments on the idea?
