Address Book .abbu & iCal .icbu Archives #

are normally created via File > Export. These archives are actually nothing more than folders, disguised as files, containing copies of:
in .icbu archives, and
~/Library/Application Support/AddressBook
in .abbu archives. Which makes scripting something up to compress, encrypt, and remotely back up your contacts and calendar very simple.
