Thanks for the report.  I'd rather not include the full path: I sometimes 
have newer btrfs than what is packaged in /usr/local/sbin and would want 
dirvish to pick that up, I just add the 
PATH=...:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin to root's crontab. But it would 
probably be a good idea to mention this in the manpage.

(NOTE also: a rewrite in the probably not very near future will probably 
change the configuration syntax to "cow: btrfs" insted of the binary btrfs 
options, so thtat it could be made to support other copy on write/snapshot 
filesystems with little effort. I'll need to wrap my head around the config 
parser a bit more, though.)
