I think it's impossible to do using any tools shipped with ejabberd.
On the other hand, ejabberd uses standard Mnesia functions to manage
backups. This means, you can work with such backups programmatically
(using Erlang) via the standard Mnesia API. Look at traverse_backup
function in  for instance. The Mnesia User's Guide  also worth
reading to get the "big picture".
