duplicity using tar as storage backend makes me suspect that duplicity
backups do not gracefully cope with bit flips in the media,
invalidating the entire backup starting with the point of the bit flip.
This can be, IIRC, remedied by calling tar with some funky parameters.
Please document whether duplicity uses this mechanism to make it more
robust against bit flips.
