I don't have any insight about windows, but:

  'tahoe backup' may do what you want.

  IMHO backup program and filesystem should be entirely decoupled

  IMHO tahoe should be accessible via the filesystem (probably via FUSE)
  as the main mode.

  you may want to use something like unix dump and store dumpfiles in
  tahoe instead.  but probably not

So heading towards fuse sounds reasonable to me, but at this moment I
think this is a bit of a hacking project, not a simple setup.
