we (DSA) would very much like this bug to be fixed.  Restore is a
special case and running bacula-fd by hand or with other parameters is
not a problem, as restores are done fairly rarely.  Another option would
be for bacula to be able to just write a tar file on disk, which could
then have the right owner/groups inside.

The extra dependency on libcap2 shouldn't be a problem for anybody.  A
fair amount of stuff already depends on it and it's a tiny library.

If we could have this bug fixed for Wheezy that would be very, very
nice, though I suspect that's a bit late (but if you could, please do
ask the release managers nicely).
