I believe it is too late, but I do agree with you.
A quick search of launchpad says there are no outstanding bugs with it..
It would be nice if it could do a simulation backup and approximate how
large the backup will be, based on your inclusion and exclusions settings.
I would also be nice to be able to use this to backup headless machines

But all in all.. it's a great little app that I'll start using for sure.
