Copies directory hierarchies recursively into another location,
by date (e.g.  /home/ => /var/bkup/2002.12.13_04.27.56/).
Permissions are preserved, so users with access to the backup
directory can recover their files themselves.
File comparisons are done with MD5 checksums, so no changes go
Hard-links unchanged backuped files to old versions and
identical files within the backuped tree.
Compresses large files (that don't match exclusion patterns).
Manages backups and removes old ones.
