nope, I looked at it, but monthday.sh is already complex and adding
a -c option (which implies that all files need to be stored
some-where, in case of a remote restore) makes it even more complex.
And I hate complexity :)
I need to really think what is needed, and how this can a accomplished
but something relative simple.
The thing is; I want to "reserve" monthday.sh for only selecting the
correct files for a restore. But when you run rdup -c, this
complicates matters somewhat.

yes, I do not think these scripts a worth installing (yet) as they do
not fully work.

okay, I keep hacking on rdup until you switch :)
