This is to announce a very simple yet useful wrapper around the GNU
tools 'find', 'cpio', 'gzip' and 'zcat'.

The script makes is easy to do a verified backup of a hierarchy of
directories using sane tool options (I hope !).

Restoring a few files from the archive selected by a pattern is simple and

Filenames with non ASCII characters are restored correctly. If they are
shown correctly, depends on the setting of LC_ALL. A recipe for success
is included in the script.

Give it a spin and tell me if it works for you.
