Can we have a feature in the backup plugin to archive or compress the configuration backups? The block size on my ZFS share that it's backing up to is quite large, so the 19.0 MB of backup data for each backup is taking up 163 MB of space. Plus, since it's a backup, I can't imagine why it shouldn't be in a tar archive anyway. I think this would be simple to implement; eg, have it on by default or a toggle in the backup configuration, and then when it's trying to restore a backup just untar/unzip the archive to a temporary directory.
