I don't have any issues about $HOME not being backed up (besides I
didn't know that, but again, it's a free service, so I do not *expect*

But I would like to know the reasoning behind that. Is /home
notoriously flooded with short-living big-sized files, or has this
something to do with local law, or what?

Thanks for your work, guys, to reenable the service.
