To have proper incremental backups done requires a lot more than just throwing "-c" into the rsyncs. For my 2c, I'm at the point where I'd prefer we discourage people from using rsync, cp, or generally try to set up their own hand-rolled backup system with PG. Those examples simply encourage poor setups that risk losing data and introducing corruption.

So, what would this mean in terms of the wiki? Should we nuke that page and point at something in the docs? Something else?
