Please point out where in the FSFE/Bacula Systems agreement the
license grant under B(1) is restricted to Bacula code.

I expect that most "Beneficiaries" who have signed FLAs with FSFE
would be rather surprised that "Bacula Systems S.A. respectively Kern
Sibbald has the right to use, reproduce, modify, redistribute and make
available software based on [their] contributions and resulting
software 'under other licenses' including under a proprietary license
as the Bacula Enterprise Version, in accordance with Section 3 (2) of
the FLA.".
