Nice way to backup lj data

I've been missing ljarchive after I moved fully away from windows, but this approach looks promising. django-ljsync is a django app that can connect to an lj account and download all the data and comments. Google apps has detailed porting instructions for django, so it's possible to have a google apps hosted blog that'll also serve as a backup of the lj data. As a plus, it'll allow me to get rid of the ads and the minor annoyances of lj. It's still a one-way sync, but something's better than nothing ;) If I am not going to Kabini this weekend, that'll be one fun project to do.
