MTX can be used to manipulate tape auto-changers, also known as "jukeboxes",
such that backup software can make use of the multiple tape capabilities of
the auto-changer.  In particular, this is necessary glue for using a backup
system like Amanda with a DDS auto-changer like the HP Surestore 12000e.
