	Which is why I use tar for important stuff like this rather
	than dump/restore. NetBSD tar know's about devices like cpio
	but MORE importantly, can be read on multiple architectures and

	I've never trusted dump/restore since there is no easy way 100%
	verify a dump without restoring it someplace. B^(.
