that's not a bad idea.  do we have a repository in mind for something like this?
i'm moving into an area with NO connectivity, so i'll end up with a really nice
(and really expensive, but i'm looking into ways to lessen the costs) frame
relay line if anyone would be interested in hosting anything with me.  for a
project like this, the web server would run on a VAX of course. :)

backup/image might do what you want.
