Who needs to test? ;-)

On the "it should be fairly simple" point I believe the last line in default.hist is always the most recent non-branched successful backup (failures don't get logged).  This should automatically allow one to handle things like --image "blahname" backups that don't go into the sort order nicely, and also avoid needing to parse summary.gz logs.

Speaking of branches, maybe you should never delete the last successful backup from any branch?  (each last line from *.hist)
