This sounds nice. You might also find some good info on http://
cvs.drupal.org/viewcvs/drupal/contributions/modules/fbu/ which is a
file backup module by Robert Douglass. We were going to do some
things w/ FBU back in March but did not get around to it. It has
some pear package dependencies. (side note - then again i think
there's a module to let you add pear package support to drupal w/o
needing to install on server itself.)
I think the idea of FBU is for backing up the /files/ directory which
has the potential for lots of new data on daily basis.
What if dbbackup could write to something in /files/dbbackup/ (and
maybe rotate out every week or X number days so you can keep a week's
worth of dbbackups locally, and then you have the module let you
backup /files/ and send it off to email/ftp/etc.?
I think this can be pretty valuable, esp. for where you don't have
backup routines setup server-wide (like w/ shared hosting) as well as
you could do one-click on-demand button to backup your entire site,
if you're about to try/test something :)
sounds very handy.
