Yeah, I didn't really want to get into that, partly on account of the 2
GB filesize limit (on 32-bit Linux), partly because the knowledgebase
item was supposed to concentrate on _copying directories_ -- less so
on backups as such.

Well, yeah, but I noticed that the Answer Gang article resorted to an
NFS (No Frigging Security) filestore. ;->
