[Duplicity-talk] Moving backup directory?

Hi guys,
my understanding is that all backup data is contained in files in the
backup location directory.

If I want to change backup directory by moving it somewhere, as long
as I make the equivalent change in my Duplicity script, it won't know
the difference?

My plan is this:

1) run a full backup to a local drive.
2) use rsync to copy this backup directory to a remote host, so it
doesn't matter if I cancel it and start again at some point in
3) change duplicity script to backup to the remote host, which should
now do a quick incremental backup, not knowing that I've been copying
the backup directory in step 2.

Does that seem plausable? Otherwise I'll have to leave my machine on
for several days to run a full backup to the remote host all in one

Finally, since I'm encryting and signing my backups, it shouldn't
matter if I upload to some public FTP server? (I happen to be using
scp to a locked down host, I'm just curious.)
