You can grab on my repository the 0.5.5-3 release of backup-manager
which includes all what you requested here :

That's done, the tpl file is now installed in /usr/share/backup-manager/

Indeed, that bashism was pointed out on the list and I've fixed it in
0.5.5-2, backup-manager now requires /bin/bash.

Currently, that's true, backup-manager can only be run by root, fixed in
0.5.5-3 too.

Feel free to contact me for more details on the code implementation or
anything else, I'll be happy to answer anything about this software.
