The data is constantly updated.  There are 3 or 4 huge tables, and
several smaller tables.  We would love to have an incremental solution
that is *guaranteed* to be correct, but we haven't found a way to do
that, so what we've been thing is we'd do a complete snapshot once a
week, and do incremental backups of one form or another every day.  The
replicated slave is allowed to stop replicating during backup.  There is
no absolute requirement on the time needed to restore.  We'd like most
disaster recovery to go fairly quickly, but we realize that on our
budget, that a major disaster could cause us fairly significant
