Simple Network Backup Utility 1.04

Snebu is a snapshot-style backup system that is fast, easy to set up, and flexible. Each backup is a snapshot of the system at that time, and can be individually labeled with a retention schedule (such as daily, weekly, monthly, etc). Backup sets can be individually expired, or expired based on age for that particular schedule name. The front end uses standard tools, such as `find` and `tar`, while the back end stores backed up file contents in standard lzop compressed files with the metadata (file names, attributes, client name, etc) are kept in an SQLite database allowing for flexible querying/reporting options. Supports simple single system installs, as well as flexible client / server operations (multiple clients back up to a central server, or the backup server can pull backups from multiple clients via ssh/sudo).
