Not 100% sure, but the conditions changed a little bit since then:
* The journal integrates a better with external storage devices.
* There are good bindings for fuse (even in python).
I think that a fuse-based-network-file-system could be a pretty
flexible and valid option for entry-level backup in XS over LAN (for
that particular scope). I am not talking about running an OS on top of
it, or using it to replace the local storage over the internet.
Is just my opinion though based on what I have tested so far.
