Best/correct way to back up keys and configuration?

What's the best way to back up my GnuPG keyrings -- just a tar.gz of the 
~/.gnupg directory?

Or is there any advantage to producing additional files with the 
"--export" and "--export-secret-keys" commands?

(I know that the backups then need to be stored securely.)
