I like duplicity [1] for a command line backup tool.

At the risk of being boorish, I'll also suggest software I maintain: a
GUI frontend to duplicity called Déjà Dup [2].  Déjà Dup is aimed at
casual desktop users and may be a more user-friendly way of setting up
your backup solution.  But it sounds like you're pretty comfortable
with the command line, and since Déjà Dup is not 100% mature (doesn't
yet promise not to eat your babies), maybe just duplicity is best.
