You should also look into the package backup2l.  I don't think it is in 
woody (it is in sarge), but it is a bash script whose only Depends is a 
very old version of findutils, so installing it should not require you 
to upgrade any other packages.

It provides the backup "strategy", and lets you choose the archiving 
program.  It provides "drivers" for .tar.gz, .tar.bz2, and .afioz, but 
allows you to add simple bash "drivers" for any other archiving tool 
you want to use.
