You should be able to put everything into ReaR that helps you...

Could you make this an option of the BACULA method or is it too different from
the BACULA stuff? Is bextract used to extract the data on bacula tapes without a
running Bacula server? Could this be the automatic default of BACKUP=BACULA if
ReaR runs on the backup server?

Sure, just send us the patch.
