Section 16.11 in the handbook. It's geared towards full-system backups, but
that's probably a good idea anyways.
Also, couldn't you use ffs snapshots as a backout plan? I don't see anything
obvious to disregard everything after a snapshot in the man pages or handbook,
however. I suppose you could do a recursive diff and copy the files from the
snapshot to the current filesystem.
