I'd check with Mike McGrath about this, but I have heard of no such

This is really starting to twist things.  Déjà Dup is nothing more than
a graphical frontend to Duplicity which happens to have a menu option
supporting Amazon S3 (along with options for backing up over SSH or to
another local directory).  Duplicity supports S3 itself, and has been in
Fedora for a while now.

Zarafa, on the other hand, is just some open source groupware software
that happens to be developed by a company.

Does anybody with some time want to do some extra research into some of
this and send a comment to the author?
