And that's the other place that backuppc will help.  If you move a
file that is already in an existing backup, backuppc's rsync will copy
it over the network because it doesn't have a match in that location,
but when it goes to add the compressed copy to the pool it will notice
that there is already a file with identical content there and use a
hardlink instead of needing additional space.
