Time Machine scores extra points

Time Machine, the go-to backup application for OS X, has gone the extra mile in its effort to be useful.  Upon exploring the directory of my former-network based backup drive (a G-Tech G-Drive, why backup to something unreliable?) I noticed that not only is it backing up my main volume running 10.6.8, it’s also backing up my 10.7.1 partition!  I was quite surprised, but I suppose I shouldn’t be since I didn’t exclude it from backup.  Regardless, a backup system that’s smart enough to figure out to backup partitions that didn’t exist when the backup system was first configured is definitely worth using.
