Needs auto-backup mechanism.

description

There is no "automated" backup system in place, even with the new XML-centric version. BUT there is an export/import feature, so if backup's are an issue, they can be created manually for the time being until a more permanent solution is devised.

The Accounts.dat file is now deprecated... but the possibility of corruption is always an issue, and this still isn't stable enough for thumb-drive use. This issue will remain open for now.

Since the new Accounts.xml file shows each individual account (encrypted), the accounts can be backed up simply by extracting the pertinent XML element(s) ("EncryptedTOTPAccount"), which are ID'd by the hashed name of the account (this hash is visible on the Edit page).

NOTE: Currently all encrypted accounts must be encrypted by the same passphrase. Multi-passphrase use is not supported!
