I just added yet another command line option, --backup, a boolean off by
default, that causes the repository to be backup immediately after Chandler
opens the repository.
This way, you can backup your repository before doing surgery on it
The destination of the backup is emitted to chandler.log. That file is in
your profile directory whose hiding place is described here:
You can also use -e to get repository log message emitted to stderr.
For example: rc --backup --undo check -e
1. backs up the repository
2. then runs check() and undo() until check() passes
To restore a repository from a backup: rc --restore <dbHome>
where <dbHome> is the path emitted during --backup
