What I would like to see in one of the following versions is to be able to update a backup repository using a list of files to check instead of rdiff-backup doing all the work.

Currently if you run a backup it's going to go over all the directories and files looking for changed files which can take a long time. However, lately operating systems have been having features like inotify and fslogger which keeps track of files that have changed. This can be dumped into a file or so that will then have a list of all the files that've been changed.

Just like the include or exclude switch there should be an update switch to only go over a certain list of files and it shouldn't alter any files/metadata on the files it didn't check (just copy it over or so)
