Do you mean to just back them up periodically, or do you actually want hourly diffs like rancid does for devices?
If the former, I suggest rsync from cron.
If the latter, it's entirely possible to modify one of the clogin variants for a Linux host and then ssh to the host and scrape out the desired file, shove it into cvs/svn, diff it, mail the diffs, etc. I have no idea if anybody has done so yet, though.
