I use both.  I have the Master server backup the catalogs
to tape and rsync the catalogs to the Master in our other
datacenter (and vice versa).  If I ever had to restore
something from one datacenter to another, I just copy or
sym_link the catalogs for the restore, use the FORCE_RESTORE
_MEDIA_SERVER in bp.conf, put the tapes in the other ATL and bam!

Saves me the time of importing the stupid things.
