One problem with e-mail is that you couldn't hear the doubtful tone as I

It does run on Linux, though. The firm employs Peter Braam (the
Intermezzo guy), and was founded by Cliff and Iris Miller after they
lost control of TurboLinux, Inc.
I didn't check the licensing, cost, or other details. It might be
feasible to use just the snapshotting code.
