There is a Perl/Tk based program called PilotManager out there too.
It should suffice for backups, but it doesn't have facilities to play
with the data locally.  (View calendars, etc.)

Somebody should port kpilot to gtk or write a Perl/Gtk one for the
Gnome project.  (I'm rather swamped right now, or I would take a look
at it myself.)  The pilot-link code has perl bindings and examples on
how to use it (including manipulating the databases locally).
