Will you make a  .xo or rpm of your backup for standalone instances of Soas?

deja-dup, when aimed to a 2nd USB, seems to restore both the 
/usr/share/sugar/activities and /home/liveuser/Activities
to the condition they were in when backed up.

I have deleted entries in both and they were restored, after rebooting 
the stick.

deja-dup does not appear to touch the journal entries, and is very 
efficient in it's use of the 4GB USB I am using for backup.

I am still testing....

My main question is:

How would I convert it to a .xo file?
Is there a reference I should consult?

I am running from the command line now.
