As I said, the chmod/chown case *should* be fine today. Deduplication in 
other cases (file renames, but also similar/identical files back up from 
different hosts) are harder. Some deduplication patches to btrfs were 
discussed in January, it's not at all clear when they'll make their way into 
released kernels (+ userspace tools), but I expect it to take a year or two 
until it has become readyl for production.

cheers

All I can say is I've tried and used a lot of distributions, but
nothing comes close to Debian.
