Your main database probably changes very infrequently. No Plone user
action should change the main database, so I suspect the backup order
doesn't matter much.
If both databases changed often, we'd have to think harder. For
example, if you put your catalog in a different database, you would want
to either back them up at the same instant (by shutting down, using a
volume snapshot, or holding a lock on both databases for a short time)
or back up the catalog first and plan to rebuild the catalog whenever
