[tahoe-dev] tahoe snapshot

I'm using Tahoe-LAFS as a shared file repository between different 
people as an alternative to a non-redundant Samba fileserver. It is 
currently working pretty well. I haven't experienced any locking issues 
because everybody access the same Tahoe-LAFS gateway via the WebAPI.

But, sometimes people make mistakes and may unlink a whole sub-directory 
by error.

I'd like to be able to take periodic snapshots of a directory and have 
those snapshots stored on the grid as deep-immutable directories. I 
couldn't find any way to perform such task with the current CLI so I'm 
looking to implement this functionality as an new CLI command.

   tahoe snapshot tahoe:blah tahoe:blah-$(date +%d-%m-%Y)

Does this sound reasonable? Any advise on how to implement it is 
welcome, thanks!
