No. I'd love to see a more 'rsyncy' behavior in that sense too.

However, I think this behavior is related Tahoe's approach to
deletions/garbage collection because updating the directory for every
file uploaded would result in an unused directory per file uploaded.

Maybe making `tahoe backup` watch for failures and 'finally' writing
just uploaded CAPs to the backup directory -  no matter if all were
uploaded or not. But still, you would see no progress during the backup.
