There is only one better solution that I know of (Tino's proposed
solution is the second best that I know).  The only better solution is
to modify your script that does the original 'vos create' and 'fs mkm'
to automatically create the backup mountpoint:

        vos create $server $partition $volume
        fs mkm $dir_path $volume
        fs mkm $dir_path/OldFiles $volume.backup
        vos backup $volume

I should just add that _any_ path you take that uses 'find' is just
wrong.  find the absolutely the WRONG solution to this problem.
