I discovered these options in the manual. In the beginning I thought
they were un-documented but actually they were documented. Thus no more
questions on how to use them.

It seems with this new method I don't have to mount n-th session to
recover backup, I just need to go to the directory. It also seems it is
not possible to actually remove a file from previous session by not
including it in the current directory, as suggested in the manual:
        Without these options, new files would be added and old ones
        would /be preserved/. But old ones would be overwritten if the
        file  was  modified.

Just for exploring, I'll test a bit, using '/' as '-old-root' and do not
use '-root', if the old files would really be preserved even if they no
longer exist on hdd at the time of doing incremental backup.
