A quick note: I wasn't able to finish reviewing your code this weekend,
and I am afraid I - probably - don't have time nor energy until next

I noticed that you used `mark` (and `reset`) to check if you already
reached end-of-stream, unfortunately not all streams support marking. This
needs to be addressed in some way, for example check `markSupported`, and
if false wrap in a `BufferedInputStream` or instead of using `mark`, we
could use a `PusbackInputStream` (so the read can be 'pushed back'), or
maybe we need to do this differently (eg reading farther ahead).

I went digging in the Firebird code to see how the remote backup/restore
worked, and I got a bit lost. I also looked at the .net provider and I am
considering whether we should divide this in two classes as well (one for
backup and one for restore), just like is done in the .net provider.

If you haven't yet done so, use the formatting definition in
build/formatting, as I noticed your code is using tabs instead of 4 spaces.
If you already did, let me know which one you used (intellij or eclipse),
as it could mean something is wrong in the formatting definition.

Was it a transportable or non-transportable backup?
