If a disk based archive will work, backuppc 
(http://backuppc.sourceforge.net/) is fairly painless and it's scheme of 
compression and hardlinking duplicates lets you keep about 10x the 
history you'd expect.  If you need offsite copies you'll have to run an 
independent instance elsewhere or come up with a clever scheme to copy 
the disk though.  The massive number of hardlinks it creates makes it 
difficult to use normal methods to copy the archive partition.
