Backing up and downloading Trac contents?

Once we get our devops stuff a little closer to completion, it would be a
great idea to have a nightly backup script running somewhere that can be
accessed by members with certain permissions. Shouldn't be terribly hard to
set that up, I think? Granular permissions would be the tricky bit but even
if it's a whitelist, Haskell isn't quite big enough for that to be painful
to manage yet.

I periodically pull down database dumps for archival. I'm a bit hesitant
to expose the entire dump but most tables can be revealed without any
trouble. I'll try to put something up shortly.
