When talking about backups, we should separate 'system' and 'data' better.
If we can get away from "backup/restore a machine", and instead can "rebuild a machine" (from configuration, e.g. #nixos or any of the other tools) and then pull the data back in separately, things would be way more elegant, and you wouldn't have to mistrust your backups after a hack in quite the same way. A Nix configuration you can audit, a whole-machine backup not so much.
Even for a developer machine, where inevitably you also run a lot of custom code, I think this is a useful goal.
