I am one of them. It is resource-fork aware, and it is more than just  
a backup utility, it is a sync utility. Its main advantage is that  
you may have more than one machine syncing through the same server,  
which works both as a backup and as a way to keep the computers in  
multi-directional sync.
I 'unison' my powerbook at home and my desktop at the office several  
times a day through the internet network with a bsd server. It is  
multi-platform, so you can sync macs, linux/unix, windows, etc. The  
only problem is that you need an additional machine, rather than just  
an external disk.
