Well, Stefan decided to remove the BackupDriver abstraction. Instead, he simply use a BlockDriverState
as backup destination. That approach is IMHO a bit limited, and means that we need to rewrite our code.

Anyways, it should be doable, but it is a real wast of time ;-/

Besides, the new code uses qmp transaction, so this can be an advantage.
