That's something that needs to be looked into. I tell apache to switch to a 
maintenance-page which is on a filesystem that doesn't get umounted. Then I 
umount the websites for the backup.

The changes to the script would require more work. If openrc stays with a 
classical init, then I will be happy.
Systemd is nice for desktops.

And systemctl will try to remount the filesystem when simply using umount:
