   can bbackupd provide some more feedback (when a sync has been run) to the
user ?
   I am thinking along the lines of say :
    - Total progress
    - Current file being synced
    - Current Speed
    - Estimated time left

 Actually, someone 'simular' to rsync's --progress would be very nice.  I
know boxbackup has been 'worked' around the fact for set and forget (lazy
mode), so I dont know how hard it would be ?

 Also, is it possible to backup/sync individual 'BackupLocations' from
/etc/box/bbackupd.conf ?
