Time for some organized backups.  It looks like Bacula[2] will solve
at least the following problems:

- Incremental + multiple versions (<-> rsync current copy)
- Multiple archs: Linux, OSX, Windows
- Flexible config (periodic, when on, ...)

Though there are some voices that it may be too complex and brittle[1].

I'm thinking that I'm probably going to stick with rsync + hard link
backups.  Started here[3].

To do multiple archs it should be possible to use rsync on cygwin and
OSX.  I don't care about full system backups, just data and config
files.  If something crashes hard it's probably best to replace the
whole machine and rebuild it manually.
