Backup and Sync of podcasts

I am not sure if this has been requested, but I had a few thoughts on this one.

1) Ability to have Doggcatcher backup its database to a cloud resource

Imagine this, you have Doggcatcher all configured up like I do (20 or so podcasts, 1 video and a few rss feeds). You have in the preferences, the ability to have it automatically backup its settings and the like to something like Skydrive, Dropbox, or GDrive. (Titanium Backup has the ability to backup the data its backs up, to Dropbox)

2) Syncing.
I know I have seen some conversations on Syncing, using the above method, wouldnt it be nice if you can configure it to upload all its data on what is one the local device to be saved in the cloud. This being a location of where you are on all your podcasts, as well as its preferences.

Sorry if this is a duplicate, but I love the application, and use it insanely often.
I would offer to beta as I run a rooted and custom rommed phone. Very easy to do this on my phone.

I wanted to put some other

I wanted to put some other comments on this, as I forgot to.

I have two phones, and I would love to be able to turn my second phone on, that I use around the house to within seconds, pull down updates on what my main phone uploaded, where I last listened.

The last piece, was the one I wish I had the most, was me install Doggcatcher, and in preferences immediately point it to my Dropbox, and it wills ALL the configuration down. This makes me, reflashing a new ROM on my phone even easier than using Titanium Backup.
