I use Tahoe for backups on the allmydata.com grid.  
I don't use 'tahoe backup', I use 'tahoe cp'.

It doesn't always work--that recent pycrypto version thingy 
gave me errors.  OTOH, if I only successfully back up
once a month, that's still more often than I got around
to backing up before I started using Tahoe, so I'm happy.
