Brackup::Target::Amazon questions

Brackup::Target::Amazon is weird. It doesn't store any of the config items
in the brackup metafile header like the other targets do - I'm not sure if 
this is by design or just an oversight? I'd have thought it makes sense to 
store all of aws_access_key_id, aws_prefix, aws_location, and backup_prefix 
in the metafile i.e. everything except the aws_secret_access_key. Are there
security reasons to omit any of these other things from the metafile? Any

It also doesn't reference aws_location or brackup_prefix in 
new_from_backup_header, so I can't see how it's possible to do do a restore
if you've set either of those. Anyone done an Amazon restore with EU buckets,
or an explicit brackup_prefix?
