Thanks for the feedback.  I am just getting this database on line so the dump file is relatively small (5 mb).  It compresses to 1/8 that size, so I could do 8 backups a day and zip them for the same space.  I tried the RCS trick, it worked very well and very quickly with this small backup file.  I could do more frequent backups that way without increasing size too much.  I think I will start with both, squirrelling away zipped backups and doing incremental diffs in RCS to see how they scale.  Hard drive space is not an issue and won't be for a while, just planning ahead.
