Support libvirt backup

Does the `lvcreate` command differ based on the VM disk image format? If so, how? Or would you use a different command in each case?

Support libvirt backup

Okay, having had a chance to poke around with this a bit, I'm inclined to agree that "it may be tricky to detect a logical volume from it's path". Therefore I think your original suggestion of `source_logical_volumes:` sounds good to me. If you still are interested in implementing this, please feel free to take a crack at it. Otherwise, let me know. And thanks for walking me through this!

installing on Arch fails due to pykwalify rules error

Okay, I believe this is now fixed in borgmatic 1.2.2, just released. I managed to change borgmatic's use of `ruamel.yaml` to load the config and the schema in such a way that pykwalify no longer explodes. I confirmed that the changed code works with both `ruamel.yaml` 0.15.51 and 0.15.52 (before and after the breaking change, respectively).

Questions: deduplication, compression, extraction

Oh, as for `auto` compression, I don't know. My guess is that it might save a little CPU on decompression, because it's not unnecessarily (de-)compressing if compression won't actually save any space.

There are .deb packages of [borgbackup](https://packages.debian.org/sid/borgbackup), but not yet for [borgmatic](https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=887809). See that thread for more information.

Thanks for filing. Looks like this is the same issue mentioned in [this pull request](https://github.com/witten/borgmatic/pull/23), and likely caused by an incompatibility in newer versions of `ruamel.yaml`.

1) As far as I know, data corruption of a de-duplicated block can indeed screw up multiple different backup archives. If this is a concern, I recommend backing up to multiple different locations. There's not a "full backup" feature like you're describing, but with borgmatic or Borg. But it would be pretty easy to declare multiple `repositories` in your borgmatic config file, and borgmatic will backup to each repository separately, thereby getting you some of the redundancy you're looking for.

Yup, basically the same thing in either case. Really a matter of preference.
