[Duplicity-talk] Archive Dir and Hosts

It is my (admittedly vague) understanding that in my archive-dir ( $HOME/.cache ) for me, there are copies of signature files and information for the Duplicity backups. Further, there seem to be some (if not all) that are host-specific.

That is, while I was testing, I used the IP Address as my target, backup-server. Then I used a host-name. When I switched between the two, duplicity seems to have had a much longer run and was refreshing its local cache or something like that.

So I have a few questions about this:

1) Is my understanding correct? Is duplicity storing backup information in host-specific sub-directories and now I will have directories that will never be referenced again, because I switched to using a different URL (for the exact same target host)?

IIF my understanding is correct in #1:

2) Can we find a better way to identify hosts so that we don't duplicate these cache files just because the name or url changed for the exact same host???

3) Is there a supported (or unsupported, but safe) way to clean-up the directories that pertain to the hostnames I'll never refer to again in the URLs, but actually DO contain my backups? Or maybe I can rename them so they match my latest hostname/URL?
