According to

is a back up feature considered, and I would like to suggest rsync

for this with the following arguments
rsync -avWHRx --delete --delete-excluded --log-format='%i %f %l'
--exclude-from=$(HOME)/.rsync-exclude-list source destination

# -a                    symbolic links, devices, attributes, permissions,
ownerships etc are preserved and recursive dirs.
# -v                    verbose
# -R                    relative
# -W                    whole files
# -H                    presurve hardlinks
# -x                    one file system
# --delete              delete files on dest side, that aren't on the src side
# --delete-excluded     also delete excluded files on receiver

After such back up, can the partition be made bootable and boot. So exact is it.

Thanks - rsync is definitely an option, but it will ultimately be up to the
person who takes on that project. One of the projects for the Google
SummerOfCode is to create a per-user backup tool, so I imagine that will have
some bearing on this project as well.
