Git devs put a lot of effort to make Git work light-fast with the local
filesystem and then you're trying to defeat this advantage.
This problem (backups) should be solved by providing each developer its
private bare repo on a centralised server (or servers) and issuing a
policy according to which every programmer must push whaveter changes
she recorded so far to that private repo before leaving home, that's
all. Git has no problem at all with using several "remotes". You can
even push to another hard disk this way etc.
