Is there a way to trigger all profiles to backup using a single cronjob, preferably PHP?

In theory, it could be done by sequentially calling each profile via a script file. But it would be a very bad idea to run the backups concurrently. The strain on the server would most probably trigger the job being killed by the host. At the very least you would have to set the script job up so that each command is finished before the next one starts. While I'm pretty sure that can be done, it is beyond my skill to actually do it.
