Currently the option exists to backup volumes whose "Name"="x". I'd prefer an ability to use different key/value pair - my plan would be to backup all volumes whose Key ("Backup") = Value ("True").

    Is this like support for any custom tags and not just the name tag?

    Yes - support for "custom tag" is exactly what I'm after. Right now, if I wanted to backup multiple EBS volumes I'd need to change the tag with the key "Name" - I'd prefer to create a second tag with the key "Backup" and the value "true".

    Just wanted to check in with you guys - I've incorporated this into a suite of tools that I make ( and was happy with the results - I'd be happy if you guys did the same.
