My suggestion was to define it as the minimum guard time between
executions of a specific job -- ie, if a job was scheduled within Job
Proximity number of seconds, it would be considered a duplicate and

Personally, I really think it's time to pull job scheduling OUT of
Bacula. This is reaching the complexity of a real job scheduling system,
and taxing Bacula with the intricacies of schedule and calendar
management on any real enterprise scale is not something that you want
to do in a individual application. 

BTW, getting an enterprise scheduler on par with something like OPC or
TWS in an open-source project -- there's real money in that.
