fwiw, tahoe-lafs is a pain in the ass to package (it has many many many
python dependencies) and i never could find in any doc if it behaves
like a real filesystem or if it's just a web panel.

anyway for synchronizing files i prefer syncthing which is much more
simpler to configure, you just exchange fingerprints.

as for encrypting backups, i'd go for kiss :P
