Then I must remember wanting to make a thread about this, the last time
I encountered this. Anyhow ...

Which is fine.

Same here.

Hmm. I find it odd to bundle bacula-fd and bacula-console in one
package. Those two packages really have not the same audience.

I think it make more sense to have bacula-console Recommended by
bacula-server, remove bacula-client and replace bacula-client by
bacula-fd in the bacula meta package.
