Hi Raul,

I don't know about the .bbb files, but Barry has some perl scripts in
the source tree under contrib/perlbarry/, one called ipd2tgz which
converts older Blackberry desktop backup files to Barry backup files.

If you can convert the .bbb to an .ipd, maybe there's hope.  I don't know
if the .bbb has a similar format as .ipd.
