  * Tidy the code with perltidy
  * Fix --rsh command line option
  * The --rsh option of rsync got errornously quoted (Debian Bug #743310)
  * Define traps to unmount LVM parts after fail If you use LVM
    snapshots and rsnapshot fails, rsnapshot will unmount and
    remove the snapshot, too.
  * cd to home before executing a command
  * if($use_lazy_deletes): remove lockfile in any case
  * Bail on failing cmd_(pre|post)exec If one of those commands
    fails, rsnapshot will exit with exit code != 0

  * Introduction of backup_exec resource for running unix commands
    interspersed with backup and backup_script jobs.
  * check for SIGPIPE, mainly in case cron fails when trying to mail
    (this is probably why rsnapshot dies mysteriously if it outputs when
    called by cron on a system which does not have mail working).

  * if gnu_cp_al fails, test out a simple cp -al command before suggesting
    that the cp does not support -al.
  * When snapshot_root does not exist, check existence of parent directories.

    based on suggestion from David Osborn).
