This also leaves a question, can you recover a complete system (OS
included) with rdiff. If anyone has implemented this setup please
share your experience.

Personally, I'm testing using native zfs on Linux
(https://github.com/zfs-linux) on Xen dom0, and use the zvol as domU
It's on RHEL dom0, with xen 4.0.1 rpm from http://www.gitco.de/repo/,
plus custom kernel from
. With this setup, incremental backup using "zfs send" is easy, as
well as restoring the block device using "zfs receive".
