	Never tried it, but you could try photobackup which is free in
the app store, it uses rsync to back up the camera roll - there are a
couple of iPhone addicts in the house who use it to back up their photos to
the house NAS where a cron job links them into to directories by year and
month. The Android users use acrosync for the same purpose.
