And you allow your backups freely span the filesystem boundaries? I've
learnt not to do it _really_ hard way. Even harder was the autocleaner -
ever went "uh, /mnt is already busy, let's mount it for an hour under
/tmp/foo... Oh, FSCK! Let's hope these tapes are alive and there goes
my fscking weekend..."?
The point being: you should protect yourself against your own fsckups - no
user will ever come anywhere near the crap you can inflict upon yourself
at 4:55pm on Friday.
