Do I correctly infer that you don't need a full backup as in "ability to
restore data from arbitrary points in time"?
For simply keeping a safety copy of your data, you should consider
OpenAFS+OSD (http://www.rzg.mpg.de/~hwr/Graz.pdf).
It interfaces with TSM HSM. ACLs are not archived, but there are other
ways to go about them.

The code is not in CVS yet, but until that's all done, we would
be pleased to already welcome more users of these features.
