not that I would remember...

I think the original intention by the packager at the time was that
bconsole would be run on a client computer, it's pulled in by the
"bacula" metapackage.

Admittedly, I've never run bconsole on another computer than where the
director is running.

I wonder if anyone ever installed bacula-client on it's own and not as a
dependency of the bacula metapackage.
