Great! Is there anything other than custom recipes that doesn't get restored? I don't think I'm ready to give up my metadata.db backups yet, but it would be nice to know that I could get back even if I'd lost my backups by running restore and grabbing my original recipe mods (which I usually keep in my recipe development area).
