My usual advice is to avoid having to write one if possible, because
it's more complex than it looks.  What about recommending existing
solutions, such as walmgr from Skytools?

Even better, what about including a default archiving tool, that could
be either another script in bin/ or rather an internal command.  The
default would accept a location as argument, for simple needs you mount
a remote filesystem and there you go.  If you need something more
complex, you still can provide it yourself.
