If you search the git log for backup you will see that a good ammt of commits have gone into making the backup plugins code pretty solid. But i havent seen a company deploy it yet, since its a pretty new feature. So i imagine there might be tweaks here or there during the Icehouse release.

In my opinion, to be truly effective snapshotting of VMs needs to be 
co-ordinated with with snapshotting of volumes. I think that 
state-management's taskflows would be the correct solution.
