Berkeley DB provides incremental, history-preserving on-line backups.

There are arguments for providing some interface to this based on the
FS interface:
- the backups' structure would have some SVN-related meaning, not just a
  random set of database log files
- it's not dependent on Berkeley DB

But the first option is done and ready to use today. I'm not sure
which is better.
