Although the concepts are somewhat similar, spooling and migration are very 
different -- migration as it is currently implemented in Bacula (or even with 
a lot of improvements) can never do the same thing as spooling.  Even if one 
did attempt to simulate spooling with migration, the overhead of migration 
compared to spooling is enormous.
