Please read the comments at the ticket, there were a lot of considerations
(and goals). I had to solve a few corner cases (other patches apparently
not related) to get this patch in.

Well, for the XS backup I guess there will no problem. For the external
storage device backup there could be data loss (we still use that simple
"save point" concept, but I think it could be improved for Dextrose 2),
anyways, the interface warns about that scenario. And (again in the
practice) we explain the kids how it works, to encourage them to use often
(which is a sane practice).
