Yes, the snapshot terminology is an artifact of the rsync based replication.
ReplicationHandler does not need to create the snapshot directories that
were necessary for rsync replication. It replicates directly out of the
index using the Lucene index commit points. An option to create the snapshot
directories is still provided for people who used to rely on the snapshot
directories for backup.

It does need to be cleaned up though. I'll try to take a shot at it.
