Yes.  We're using it so that we can get per-file backups and restores of
AFS.  It works reasonably well, and we've not noticed significant slowness
problems apart from occasionally some difficulties with the AIX AFS

Unfortunately, TSM is dropping support for AFS, and we're currently having
to copy the appropriate binaries from older versions of TSM.  We're trying
to put pressure on IBM to reverse this decision; if they don't, we may
have to move to another backup system.
