In lazy mode, bbackupd will wait a good few hours before even  
thinking about uploading the file, just in case the user modifies it  
again. (Because another edit to an edited document is likely.) It's  
only after a much longer time will it upload it anyway, to make sure  
that changed documents do get uploaded in a timely manner.

We now need to get into the habit of adding every question asked on  
the list into a FAQ on the wiki.
