I just backed up and then restored the home directory of my f13 RC3 soas 
spin  4GB USB to a 2nd 4 GB USB.
* looks like it worked. Still testing.

# yum install duplicity
# yum install deja-dup

Has anyone else tried this for Sugar or Soas?

This looks like a possible candidate for a future sugarized application.
