The first question we should as is "Does BackupPC's pool usage report actual 
file size, or file size on disk (rounded up to nearest block)?" Does anyone 
the answer?

I would expect it to show actual file size, because "size on disk" will vary 
with filesystem, both at the BackupPC server and the host you might restore it 
to. Only a true file size report would be useful. But it would be nice to 
report and graph both.


"Religion is autocratic, law is democratic, and science is
meritocratic. Religious logic is dogmatic, legal logic is axiomatic, and
science is pragmatic. Scientific theories can be altered by publishing a
paper with reproducible results, and political principles can be changed
every two to four years with an election, but if you want to change
religious principles you usually have to wait for a whole generation of
clergy to die."
