I plan on having the Octavia answer be: backing up = sharing = copying a
(sub)directory descriptor somewhere. "Make sure to send your latest version
of root descriptor to yourself in encrypted email every night!" Currently,
victims^H^H^H^H^H^H^Husers manage descriptor versions manually, but A Real
Client(tm) would hide that from you, keeping the latest version of your root
in e.g. ~/.8va/root for easy gpgmailing.
