Responded to @kasparsd:

Turns out `tar` can’t incrementally update encrypted archives (makes sense), and it also can’t update an unencrypted archive with just the changes so you’re responsible for ensuring the full chain or snapshot archives which isn’t feasible.

Block-level snapshots are nice, though. The network transfer is more consistent when compared to file level transfers.
