hard links and bind mounts

Andrew Engelbrecht
from reading the rdiff-backup documentation, it seems that rdiff-backup
is smart about hard links, i.e. doesn't duplicate content of hard linked
files. (is this true?)

i wonder whether rdiff-backup is similarly intelligent about bind mounts
and duplicate mounts. (will rdiff-backup save multiple copies of files
if /mnt1 is bind mounted to /mnt2 and both are inclduded in the

(in any case, i recognize that it's possible to --exclude one of the
mount points.)

thanks for a great project!
