Yes, I know that the OP was asking about pushing backups and rsnapshot
only pulls backups.  The point was that the OP just wasn't getting the
- --link-dest concept at all.  Therefore a DIY solution just wasn't
going to heppen.  Therefore trying something like rsnapshot would
either be a "good enough" solution or it would be a working example
that would demonstrate the concept.
