There's nothing wrong with FULL system saves, even daily, AFAIK. Any shop that 
can afford the regular restricted state might as well go for it; I'd sure have 
no problem doing it.

But if restricted state, console access, attended operations, etc., become a 
problem, it might be reasonable just to run a less restrictive save.

I've gotten the feeling at times that a lot of smaller shops believe that FULL 
saves _must_ be done regularly and frequently. This leads to a lot of questions 
like "Can I run option 21 in batch?" and "How can I run option 21 without 
restricted state because I want to do this every Friday and want to go home?"

For all those newbie or smaller sites, I believe it's useful to keep in mind 
that FULL system saves every day or week might not be worth the effort.
