A while back we discussed the idea of an Export job type (a variation of
the Copy job, or maybe a special kind of Restore job) that could take
selected files or jobs from the Bacula database and write them out in
more mundane formats such as tar, cpio, or gzip format. 

I don't know if it'll ever get implemented, but it sounds like that
would be ideal for what you're wanting to do here.
