I can't test it on my system at the moment, but wouldn't acls make the
files writable for general users? The backup filesystem needs to be
mounted read-write for root only, and read-only for general users, yet
maintain ownership and permissions.

Yes, exactly. Users need to be able to see their own backups, and
Isn't this what acl's are for? See setfacl(8). I haven't looked into it in
great detail but seems to me that if you make a subdir owned by the user for
each backup root for that user and set the acl to only be accessible by user,
it should work.
Is it possible to use acls to revoke normal UNIX permissions on a
directory hierarchy? I.e. use acls to limit users from writing to the
read-write backup filesystem.
