http://alfplayer.com/ provides this basically. As you can see, it was 
working until 4 months ago. Now I started to sync it again and I intend 
to keep it working. Sharing the scripts is still on my to do list. It's 
also possible to use or adapt the Arch Rollback Machine scripts, which 
were publicly available last time I checked.
