in fact , im not using it for backups, but during the evolutionary phase of
development. we have a very short cycle, XP style, and we find convenient to be
able to dump the db to textfiles,
-either to preserve the data in case of break of the schema ( and we can at

if u have any idea on adapting schema more automatically, ure most welcomed !
