statistics for backup tapes needed.

for instance, at work, there is a big restructuration of departements.
so, there are 10 gigs (about 300 GB) to move from servers to others. of
course, I use some kind of awk scripts to do the same things. but, under
FreeBSD, I saw that du has a -c option to do that job. why df couln't have
the same option to do the same job ? for every scripts I write, I do it the
more portable as possible I can. but if I can optimize the job, I'll do it.

another way to say that is : how is it possible you don't like this option
to df for any reason, while you have accepted the same option to du ?
