Impressive, I usually have gotten errors during the export, because it
tries to export content objects when I don't want to, I just want to
back up the configuration.
Of course, there is the problem that some configuration uses content
objects, so if you try to export just configuration and not content
you have problems anyway, but I don't know what we can do about
(I have to say though that I think the claim that this is what GS is
for probably is news to many. It was always pushed as a way to do
*setup* not exporting content. Ah well).
