Between this SQLite issue, broken Unicode functionality and client
disconnecting every few hours and then getting stuck, it seems to me that
Tahoe is unusable for any practical purpose?

I am a bit surprised that I am apparently the only person trying to use
'tahoe backup' functionality... can this be correct, or am I missing
something ?

Is anyone  on this list using Tahoe for more then hacking?

Please note: this is not intended to flame up passions or hurt feelings. I
am simply trying to determine if I can use Tahoe for a particular purpose, a
choice that is entirely my own fault.
