I modified the config script slightly, but didn't want to change the
web site as it would confuse people using the old version:
bbackupd-config has a new parameter, it's now
bbackupd-config config-dir backup-mode account-num server-hostname
backup-dir [more backup directories]
backup-mode is either 'lazy' or 'snapshot'. Choose 'lazy' for the
current behaviour. Choose snapshot if you would like to use the new
bbackupctl program as a cron job to say exactly when you want to take a
snapshot of your file system. (The first mode is good for collections
of documents, the second is good for backing up servers.)
-- summary: insert "lazy" after '/etc/box'.

At the moment, you have to wait until I write the necessary tools.
Shouldn't be that long, basically all the code is there, I just need to
pop it into a little daemon which does the magic in the background.
Thanks for trying it out!
