 When I do backups, I only take /etc and /home, everything else I can
 afford to lose. 

 Hmm. A small package to do a tarball from /etc periodically..  not even
 worth package, just a cron script to make etc_date.tar.gz and keep lets
 say every mondays packages for a year and delete everything else after
 a week. Or once a day check /etc and subdirs, if contain files that have
 been changes since last time would be better...
