#16491: Automatically backup database before updating

 Severity:  major        |   Keywords:
 Currently when updating Wordpress or its plugins/themes there's a message
 at the top of the page, reading that the user should backup its database.

 This "update tool" would be so much more useful, if it could backup the
 database automatically before updating. I'm not so sure why one would need
 to backup the files so this step could most likely be skipped.
