that sounds fine really. but you could use cvs as an alternative.
it would be silly, but it's an option.
rsync to a cvs tree on the archive (excluding cvs dirs/files).
some script to add new files to cvs.
cvs tag for that day.
and then whatever cvs command you need to issue to delete old versions
of the files.
a webcvs interface could be used to restore.
downside - you have to store two copies of the data. the working tree
and the actual repository.
