Make sure you use trac-admin from /usr/local/bin/ -  there is a
version in /usr/bin, but it doesn't correspond to the the trac version
we're using.
I actually want to get rid of the one in /usr, but I'm not sure how it
got there.

There's a script that I wrote that rlaager should have somewhere that
will backup trac and the postgresql db associated with it.

It backs up the trac instance (but not the associated postgresql db).
