I forgot to mention that the way it does file attributes has changed 
slightly, so when you first run a new client against an old backup 
store, it will upload new file attributes for every file. This uses up 
a bit of bandwidth, and increases the size of the directories on the 
store by about 50 bytes a file. Not a huge problem.
