good standing. A lot of kind people write me, concerned I may be breaking
the law by saying you have to be a Church member. It's legal I promise! :-)

if your stategy is to backup directly to tape then *RMAN* must integrate via 
the mml. If it's to backup to disk and then tape, then *you* need to 
co-ordinate the rman policy with the tape backup policy. if its to backup to 
disk only then its probably not an issue.
