Great.  Except that containers should probably be exposed like we do
for S3 'folders' so the user can backup multiple machines to rackspace
in different containers (and we don't have to bother with a
deja-dup-auto-XXXXX container since they aren't global).

I like the idea of a little baby parent class (BackendCloud?
BackendCustom?).  I'm guessing there will be more of these subclasses
as time goes on.

But sounds good!  Thanks!
