Thank you again, @MarkPlotnick - you suggestions led me to examine that generator in detail, which led to my discovering the answer.

AHA! It's because this is a VM... I'll update my post or add an answer but now I know why that file wasn't getting generated.

Yep, and I get the "missing $INTERFACE" error that's mentioned out there as well... it's rather frustrating.

comment Performing accurate snapshot and incremental backups to a remote server
Flat as in my backup is a bunch of files and folders on the disk, versus blob(s) that contain the data much like a tarball might.

I had these and more already, but what I didn't know was whether this would work well or poorly for this purpose. Turns out they have been working OK (though it'd be nice to be able to archive this entirely with such options, instead of having it live as a flat filesystem with numeric IDs and such... unfortunately tar AFAIK isn't up to the task).

Added my own answer instead. rsync - which I started with and which I was aware of most of the options for - isn't the only solution, but it'll do for the time being.
