[Box Backup] BoxBackup as a security tool

I was just looking at some security stuff for intrusion monitoring by 
tools like Tripwire and AIDE, and realized something: BoxBackup does 
file change monitoring, AND stores the filesystem state on a remote 
machine which could be configured for boxbackup access but not login access.

This means that boxbackup could easily be a superior file-change 
monitoring system without much effort. Also, backups and intrusion 
monitoring are the two most neglected-but-important tools. Add a few 
security monitoring features to boxbackup, and you cover both at once.

All in favor? opposed?
