Bulk labelling volumes in Bacula

My EC2 Bacula storage configuration consists of a single pool containing multiple storage devices. Each storage device is a 100GB EBS store, and each contains a fixed number of prelabelled 1GB volumes.

Here's a little script I whipped together to prelabel the volumes with an incremental identifier.
