     I was supposed to work on that, but am overwhelmed with other
tasks at this time.  Somebody else may already be working on this
as well.

A very old/early set of scripts is at:

These scripts DO NOT use the laptops serial number as the username
and their private keys for authentication (it uses a single key).    
Simple mod.

These scripts DO NOT properly address where files are kept on a modern
build.   Somebody from the Sugar/Activities team will have to provide  

When registered with a school server, a home directory for each  
laptop is
created in /library/users/.   These scripts do not attempt to support  
backup copies.  The backup is simply contain the union of all files  
ever backed up.

Please share your results back with the group!
