You can also use the replication system for incremental updates to a tape
spooling system once a day (or maybe a few times a day). Replication sits
on top of libimap so it can cope with database files changing under its
feet. It should also be quite a lot faster than rsync as it only has to
look at the index files at each end to work out what has changed.
