Nice, I'll look into this.

However I'm a big fan of mounting the backup media only when actually
making the backup, so this plugin won't be able to check when the
filesystem isn't mounted, I guess (haven't looked yet). Maybe it could
be modified to check just before umounting and then write some status
somewhere with a timestamp that could be checked... I may look into this
at some point.
