Well, the idea seems reasonable.

Implementing it might mean a bit of work for the developers, though... 
nothing spectacular, I believe: Just create a %-variable holding the 
catalog database type and pass that as a parameter to the catalog 
backup script.

I cc the -devel list - hopefully someone picks it up ;-)

Reply-to is set to the -devel list now as I believe the feature is 
desirable, doesn't need much discussion, and is rather easy to implement.
