It is part in the contrib directory.

There are still some parts uncommitted (but in JIRA) so please don't use it.
I am taking this opportunity to rethink the design of a few classes and
perform some house cleaning tasks (add good unit test, some class
renaming,...). I should post on JIRA a new zip by the end of this week or
the next one.

As I am not a committer, I don't know when the commit will actually be
performed, but based on off ML discussion I am pretty confident it should be
quite fast after I post the code.

I am also interested in if the backup/restore tool is suitable for the

It is built for this.

We discussed this use case. It is not currently supported, but I designed
the project in a way where it is quite easy to support it. If you give me a
few more weeks, I can add it quite easily.

This new feature can be added in an afternoon (I know I have hardly free
time those days). All contributions on this are welcome :)
