Whe have already created a small script to downloading the xml dump from the
ircservices and that create  a complet new database on the backup
and working great for us the backup ircservices must we start by hand
to exclude that the backupservices will start with a small netsplit and so
the ircd servers
not can't connect again.
if you are intrested for the script mail me and i will send it to you Andrew
