I think that's what I was going for, a nice evolution towards journaled 
and database (ala Be) style hybrid filesystems in the future.  One 
should be able to click a few buttons or run a command line backup that 
is so complete and thoroughly checked that one merely has to stick the 
media in and boot from it to get a perfectly restored system.  It 
should work anytime and anywhere (normal precautions notwithstanding 
like doing it during off-hours in order to keep full speed processing 
happening during the day).

Ideally it should also be capable of producing bootable CD-R's or 
DVD-R's.  These would only stop to ask where to stop (i.e. how many 
transaction logs or what point in time to back up to)
