We get to make it the One True Way in the user help. Right now,
we have a dozen or so pages about backups. And right now, they
basically say "Déjà Dup is cool. You should use it. But maybe
you don't have it, so here's boring technical information."
I'd rather the help could just discuss the GNOME backup system,
but I can only do that if there's a GNOME backup system.
