[_] Amazon Glacier for Off-Site Backup

Has anyone had experience with Amazon Glacier?

It seems like a good fit for off-site backup/disaster recovery and at 1
cent per GB/Month it's not exactly hard on the wallet.  I'm thinking of
using this for storing nightly/weekly backups of
less operationally critical data (code repositories, documents, accounts
etc).

My searches for Glacier clients have turned up a couple of libraries that
wrap the AWS API but nothing that works as a backup agent `out-of-the-box`.
 An rsync style tool for incremental backups on Linux would be ideal.
