it would be nice but hiding complexity behind a good ui is ok too.

some. authentication and confidentiality as provided by ssh should be a good
baseline. I'd love for the remote backup to be encrypted locally so one could
backup to a hostile host. M of N splitting would be a dream.

yes. ssh would be fine
I would love it if we were not dependent on cygwin (full install) but had
something completely stand alone.
