[OpenAFS] Using TSM with AFS.

As I have understood it, AFS support in TSM were dropped some years ago 
(the AFS client were only available for AIX anyway?). 

So the people now using TSM seems to do stuff like "vos dump" and store 
the dumps in TSM.

But; we would like to do real volume backups in TSM and store 
generations of files etc, which seems
to be quite difficult as it works right now.

So, I took a brief look at the TSM programmer's API, and it looks like 
it won't be too difficult to modify
the "vos dump" stuff to cooperate with TSM to get it running.  Actually, 
it looked so simple so I'm wondering
what I can have missed :-) Hasn't someone done this before? 

Note that I haven't ever looked at TSM before, neither been into AFS and 
how it works, so feel free to
give me hints or tell me what I might have missed... :-)
