i suspect it's quite annoying when people try to re-engineer your request, 
but i use bacula for some fairly large installations (several hundred LTO2 
tapes, 60-tape dual-drive stacker with barcode support, 5TB of staging 
disc, that sort of thing) as well as my much-smaller home backups, and 
find its tape management lovely - after i made one or two small but 
important tweaks.

if you're not already so sick of bacula that the mere name makes you break 
out in hives, might i ask what problems you've been having?  on- or 
off-list is fine, as you prefer.
