storeBackup and its associated tools are written in perl, but do not "use warnings". For a software concerned with such a sensitive thing as backup data, I really consider this a bug!

Enabling "use warnings" in storeBackup* yields numerous warnings (like variable redefinition, use of undefined values ...) which in no way seem to be intended by the author.

Please, please "use warnings"!

Thank you.
