The current interest from Paraguay is a simple way to do a full
restore after a reflash, which is currently outside of Martin's work
(I believe). I hacked some scripts together which have been installed
on the XOs, they can be used by the technicians and hopefully even the
more advanced teachers/children. Ideally further development work is
needed here, probably at the sugar level (some kind of utility which
displays all available backups, allows full restore of any one of
them, etc).

We haven't yet seen any demand for a single-file restore feature and
are not offering this on the XS-0.5.2's that we are deploying. However
who knows which needs will appear once the laptops are delivered to
the children next week!
