I don't think it supports multiple volumes (that is, the backup spans
more than one disk/etc), and I don't want to mess around with RAID and
so on to try to merge devices even where this is supportable.

If it weren't for that there are actually a lot of solutions like
duplicity, restic, rsnapshot, rsync, and so on...

I'm up for chatting about it some tonight if anybody else is
interested at North.  Right now I'm leaning towards bacula, but
running it from a container and then just keeping a tarball of the
container on the backup media.  The tarball would be taken after each
backup so it would include the database and its data files - made
while bacula is offline.
