No, currently there is no way that I can see. I suppose it would be
possible to add an option to give an arbitrary name to the
rdiff-backup-data directory (so only the new name, and not necessarily
"rdiff-backup-data" would be excluded). But since each
rdiff-backup-data directory already contains incremental information
(rdiff-backup-data never deletes anything from this directory),
wouldn't it be a waste to save the previous versions? Why not just
use rsync (or rdiff-backup --mirror-only)?
