I agree that date-based snapshot names are the way to go, as then you
never have to rename anything. And, as was already noted, with snapshot
names fixed, it is easy to find the most recent common snapshot for
increment sends.

My question was for Richard Elling, who suggested NOT using date-based
snapshot names.
