You could simply create another encrypted partition (e.g. on USB) with
different key, then use rdiff-backup to backup one to the other.  Of
course, they would both have to be mounted at the same time.

I'm not sure if this is the best way, space-wise, but it's conceptually
simple and I can't see how it would degrade security.

This was my first thought but the partitions need to be backed up when they are not mounted.
