Centralise and simplify your PostgreSQL hot backup management

After writing the same scripts to perform PostgreSQL hot backup over and over again, I eventually got bored and I decided to write a tool that centralises the whole thing from a central configuration file.

It's still a developer release, but it'd be great if some of you can give it a go and report any major defects.

Here it is: pg_cryobit

    I'm getting ready to give this a whirl. Any advice? I ask because I don't see that anyone else has commented.

[Corion]: Hmmm. I feel a Meditation coming on. I wrote a module, DBIx::PivotQuery, which returns a table-like set of rows (AoA) but some columns are generated from column values, like in an (Excel) pivot table or a ROLLUP command
[Corion]: My current approach for subtotals involves rerunning the given query, with the hint to the user that they should use a temporary table if they want better performance.
[Corion]: But I could create that temporary table in the module and use it for the improved perfomance directly instead.
[Corion]: And the question is, what would be better/preferred ;-)
[Corion]: Hmm - not exactly like the ROLLUP command. Ah well.
