That's if and only if you use dump instead of tar.  I use tar to back up
some large filesystems that have large amounts of incompressible video by
splitting them into manageable chunks.  With Amanda you can choose to use
dump or tar on a per-filesystem basis so you have a bit of flexibility when
deciding which strategy to use.
