definitely. Backups are different thing.

But i do not consider online mirroring from hammer as backup feature, but 
something like more sophisticated mirroring.

As long as backed up data is available on line for writing i don't 
consider it backup.

I use rsync for backing up everything, with backup machine located on 
different place, and not accessible from outside internet.

and that this copies are not ever regenerated.

Seems you are quite out of date with FreeBSD. FreeBSD UFS do perform disk 
cache flushes at right time.
