Hello Kern,

 reporting back. There were soem things that kept me occupied, so
sorry for the late reaction.

Ups. Well yes, I should have thought about why the records are done 
alright for the second and further extents ("files" on target tape).

[structural design matters]
|What do you think?

Well, I think, lets first have a look at another issue that I had 
with migration, because there it seems more difficult to address it 
in a well-structured way. 
Over all, migration is an incredibly valuable function, because it
elevates Bacula from "something that makes backups" into a
management tool for all kinds of archived data. All the things
like copying storage, reorganizing storage etc. open up from here.
But, as I see it, when we start using it in such a way, we will 
currently run into some deficiencies, and from there it may be 
worth thinking about how much extra structure might be necessary
to get it together flawlessly.
