Tried that when reading your (pretty good) documentation, unfortunately
there is no re_format manpage in Debian, but I think regex lookrounds are

Thats a good idea but I'll add a new BackupLocation (never change a running
system, apache and symlinks ;-). I had the same problem with "includes in
excludes" while tar was doing my backups, so I used multiple files. I only
thought to omit this extra step when looking at the "AlwaysIncludeDir"
Thank you for your support and your really good code!
