How about in the backup storing a list of apps that were installed 
from repositories and the repository list, then post flash offer to 
reinstall some/all of the apps from the repositories - less likely to 
break and less space needed for backup.  (I assume there is some way 
apps can have their settings stored/restored in the backup by saving 
them in a place backedup/restored by the utility).
