Which one will let me back up my files? That one is the best :-)

Consider adding different approaches that user can choose as appropriate at
run-time using configuration file or command line options.

That's the one... :-) You can rest assured that 100% of crude end-users will
choose to have a first picture of there baby with gibberish file name,
instead of not having it at all.

Is it realistic to hope to be able to back up my files with current state of
the file names in the next 7 days or so?
