And for backup/restore. In respect to the -fix flags, I would rather go
with gbak, although AFAIK they are also available via the Services API.
And the gbak usage needs to specify a "from" and "to" character set.

For extracting. I don't know how Flamerobin deals with inter-dependency.
Also DBW V3 is a bit out-dated. Perhaps you could give isql a try to
extract metadata into a script?
