Scripting an iPhone Backup using Transmit
 
Is there any way to create an AppleScript that would automate the process of backing up specific folders on my (jailbroken) iPhone to dated backup folders in a location of my choosing on my Mac?

I would like to have an AppleScript automatically backup the following folders on my iPhone:

Stash>Themes.xxxxx
mobile>Library>SBSettings
mobile>Library>Preferences>TimeCapsule
mobile>Library>AppBackup
mobile>Library>Downloads
...and perhaps a few others...

What would really be amazing would be to setup an iCal alarm to trigger every night while I am sleeping (when my iPhone is always charging in the cradle) that would launch transmit and then initiate a backup...

I don't suppose anyone wants to get crazy and make such a script...not just for me, but for the hundreds of others that would certain use it as well??

I'll keep my fingers crossed!
