I was looking into this last week and found this thread enlightening: http://www.nabble.com/Backing-up-Data.fs-and-blob-directory-td19291251.html#a19293438

 From that, it sounds like doing a repozo backup followed by an rsync  
of the blobstorage dir probably isn't insane, at least in some setups.

I agree that it would be nice to have some more pre-baked scripts for  
this though.
