I would suggest a config option like 'remove older backups to free

That would work great as well in combination with the 'logarithmic'
cleaning, because you will only loose your oldest backup when your
backup disk is (nearly) full. You might also want to add an option to
'keep at least # full backups', which will cause sbackup to fail if
there really is no space left. This would prevent you from having only
the latest backup left in case the new backup is unexpectedly large.

Seems like this would not be much work to implement - anyone?

  should delete old backups, then create new / not enough space on media
