So at Read Carry Tape time, you have:
specific filename as text string
dump group, which was the wildcard pathname used to generate the
dump group output wildcard spec
That's enough to use (FLAVOR:METHOD :TRANSLATE-WILD-PATHNAME PATHNAME) to
generate a meaningful output file name.
If you actually do something like this, I'd love to have a copy.

0 Restoring IVORY:>Stever>Frobbozz>Mumble.frotz into
Unfortunately, translating :WILD-INFERIORS pathnames in this way doesn't
work if the target file system is Unix, which is a possibility I'd like
to allow for (yes, I know ILA-NFS includes this, but this hack is
intended to be used at our customer sites, which may not have NFS).
