Actually I do for my backups :)
With todays sizes and prizes of removable storage, it really makes much
more sense to backup to a 300GB fast, easy to install and cheap
FireWire-disk, than to a slow and expensive tapedrive.
Most of the time this is probably done as root, but I guess there still
might be situations where one wants to run such a job as another user.
