Problem is however that fileset shadowing can only be performed on the client
e.g. you need to look at the rdev field of the stat struct of the directory.
And as each Job can only have one fileset its not something that is easy to
implement. The current shadowing options make it possible to protect you from
simple error where data would normally be backup multiple times.

I think its also more a problem that a good sysadmin can solve himself and
the whole concept of shadowing over multiple filesets is something that I will
for now close as won't fix. Also what means "all" filesets keep in mind that one
client could be part of multiple directors.

With the current dir->fd protocol this is not possible and I don't have
the urge to expand it. But if you want to work on it feel free to fork
the github repo and start coding.
