Ok...One question the client asked that I *didn't* know the answer:

When we go to restore a file, I can restore *any* client from *any* 
other client. We only want the client to be able to restore it's own 
backups and not any others.

Now with the demo, I just used the "stock" defaults for bacula. Anyone 
know how to lock down the clients access?
