Trying it out now with a noburn option with a .dar file size limit. See if 
this works. Am I correct to assume that it will fill the first one, burn it 
while filling the next one, remove it after burning/verifying and continue 
until done/disk is full?

Still takes a very long time and verifying will also take a long time. This 
ammount of time, if user intervention be required, will discourage backups.

So sometime along the line, needed:
1. Tell me how many disks I will need and some time estimates.
2. Option not to verity. The other script has this.
3. Exclude options. I think dar defaults these.

Anyway, the slice size limit did not work. Should--simply passed on to dar?
