Hey man, you're preaching to the choir. I have to fight my battles one
at a time. :)

The problem is that for some reason there are developers on my team who
are very prone to wiping out weeks' worth of work, and getting a backup
from tape takes at least a day, which is usually about 23 hours too
late. So version control has the added function of ad-hoc backups for us.

Actually, though, it's not so often that the WC is actually updated.. so
in that case, is there a way to accomplish this, even if all files in
the WC have been commited (or are new adds)?
