I was about to ask this exact same question so I'll add my specific 
queries to the conversation, if I may.

In particular, we're using LevelDB and are considering filesystem 
snapshots and then syncing the snapshots off-site. But what happens if 
the snapshot is taken while LevelDB is in mid-write? Would LevelDB cope 
if that snapshot was restored as the live database?
