@minrk I spent some more time this week tinkering with the Contents API; I think I've reached the conclusion that it would be a lot more powerful to factor out the management of checkpoints into a separate class whose only responsibility is checkpoint management. Would be curious to hear your thoughts on that idea.
The main upside would be that you could easily mix and match the storage backend for plain files and checkpoints. In particular, the ability to use the default FileManager but send checkpoints to remote storage feels like a pretty compelling combination to me.
