One package to look at is Mahara, also from your neck of the woods
(Martin) which you've probably heard of. I installed it along a Moodle
install and took advantage of xmlrpc to do sharing of data and single
sign on. Mahara is an e-portfolio system, that when set up looks a
little like a personalised facebook, with resume, file areas, and many
other user specific items. backups would fit in there perfectly.
