Yes, no problem.  You just need to try to find a way so that it doesn't 
inadvertently make existing Bacula scripting fail.  Probably the best way is 
not to remove the item, but simply print an error message if it is selected 
unless you can find a way to guarentee that scripting won't be broken (i.e. 
that the index input does not change).
