We used to use RSnapshot http://www.rsnapshot.org/ to backup to an

Just after I posted, I started thinking about rsync. I hadn't known about
rsync's hard link feature.
So once I saw that, the trail did lead me to rsnapshot. The only thing I
don't like about it is the security hole it demands of remote machines to be
able to back up to them.
Take a look at rsync's -e feature. You can use it to pipe its output
through an ssh tunnel much as I just posted a moment ago:
rsync -e "ssh -x" ... kreacher:path/to/usb/storage
