As far as I can tell from the code, just running it from the postinst

Good question; perhaps that can be made an option in the dialog that pops
up on connecting removable media. I believe designers will take care of
this as soon as Luna is out of the door. Right now they're preoccupied with
the upcoming OS release.

By the way, is there an option to use btrfs or nilfs2 snapshots for storing

promising for a time machine backend when I drafted
