snapshots, backups?

I know data stored in Riak is written to W <= N replicas so the data  
is at least *somewhere* on my servers/replicas.  However, it would be  
comforting to be able to make a snapshot of *all* data periodically  
and ship it offsite to, tarsnap, or S3.  Assume the data  
center hosting your Riak replicas explodes or is under a horrible DDoS  
attack.  What do you do?  This concern is a more general BCP issue of  
course but I wonder how this might be done in Riak.
