That would be a big thing for me as on a Windows system my key would
be in putty's encrypted format. But then I don't store anything on
Windows system so I probably wouldn't be using this. I was mostly
asking because people ask me these things on #rsync.
Also, I have added your product to the channel FAQ at
https://sanitarium.net/rsyncfaq/#windows I will eventually give it a
try and decide if I should move it higher on the list.
If you could document the process of backing up a complete Windows
system and doing a bare metal restore that would probably eliminate
the need to even mention the other choices since afaik they can't do it.
