If you run:

    rdiff-backup -r now /backup/homedir

it will say:

    Error: Two arguments are required (source, destination).
    See the rdiff-backup manual page for instructions

If you run:

    rdiff-backup -r now /backup/homedir destdir

it will basically copy /backup/homedir to destdir.  If destdir exists
it will say:

    Fatal Error: Restore target out/ already exists, and will not
    be overwritten.
