[PLUG] Backing up Google Calendars

I was recently fiddling with my Google calendar and wondering how to 
back it up, just in case.  I found:

Basically, you go into the calendar settings and grab the URL for the 
XML, ICAL or HTML versions, and that's it.  A trivial script like this 
and you're done:

#!/bin/bash -
# Trivial script to backup Google Calendars
set -e
cd /home/something/Google_Calendar_Backups
wget -qO jp.xml  ''
wget -qO jp.ics  ''
wget -qO jp.html ''

Well you're done unless you want to keep older versions or something, 
though in theory your existing backup solution should handle that. 
Right?  You *do* have an existing backup solution, right?
