Sometime in the near future (possibly 3.0.0), I would like to remove Phython 
from Bacula.  However, before doing so, I plan to implement Bacula plugins, 
and will attempt to create a plugin that  duplicates current Python 
functionality -- at least that is my idea.  

I believe that various different plugins for different scripting languages can 
be easily implemented.  That way, everyone can have his favorite scripting 
language (perl, ruby, lua, python, ...)

Best regards,
