Yes.  Per Leon's email, I was wrong about bat not running under windows.
So if you use that solution:
    1. the user starts up the bat console on their windows box
    2. bat connects to the director
    3. the director tells the storage daemon and the file daemon what
       to restore (based on info from bat)
    4. the storage daemon sends the files to the file daemon
    5. the file daemon (which is running on the windows machines, in this
       case) writes them to the the local filesystem
