I think there is a difference between what dump does and what tar/
rsync do... I like the idea of doing a bit level backup, rather than
a file level backup.
If you've never done a dump, try it locally, and then try restore,
particularly interactive restore (restore -i). It's pretty cool and I
don't think tar or rsync have anything like it.
