[Product-Developers] collective.recipe.backup: confused about names of snapshot files

when you create a snapshot backup with bin/snapshotbackup, it adds new backup
files of the filestorage to var/snapshotbackups (e.g. 2012-03-23-12-47-20.dat,
2012-03-23-12-47-21.index, 2012-03-23-12-47-20.fsz) and to
var/blobstoragesnapshots (e.g. blobstorage.0).
Now I would like to restore a backup (for a certain date) that resides on the
production server on my local machine, but I do not know which files to pick.
More concretely, my questions are:
- why is the date not included in filenames in var/blobstoragesnapshots?
- how does bin/snapshotrestore couple files in var/snapshotbackups with a
corresponding file in var/blobstoragesnapshots?
- how can I (as a human being) know which files in var/snapshotbackups go with
which file in var/blobstoragesnapshots?
- if I copy the right backup files from the production server to the
corresponding backup-folders on my local machine, restoring the backup for a
certain date will just work?
