Thanks for your DSA work, I'm very grateful and I'd like to help with
reducing backup pressure as much as I can.

I'd like to have a look at what I have scattered around and see where to
add .nobackup files, and I have no idea where I might have data that is
being backed up.

Would it be possible to generate a report of where is (and how much is)
stuff that I own in all bits of filesystem that are being backed up?
