Possibly. It depends on what your definition of 'more elegant' is I suppose. Personally I'd have done something like...

find / -name *.wbk -exec zip -g /path/to/whatever.zip {} ';'

Since I'm RARELY in Finder, but ALWAYS have a terminal window open, for me.. this IS more elegant. Especially if you cron it
