why can't SuperDuper do a fit check?

Diddly little complaint here on a wonderful product, but why oh why can't SuperDuper check to see that the volume it is trying to copy will fit in the partition that it is being copied to? My disk volume was a little bigger than I thought it was, and I started a SD copy. After a half hour of copying, right near the end, boom! Red flags! No can do! (Reason unspecified.) I tried it a few times, and the same thing happened each time. FINALLY I looked at the sizes, and realized that it wouldn't fit. Oops. SuperDuper only realizes that near the end of the copy when it can't see any more room on the partition.

I bumped up the partition size, and then it all worked.

Now, I can see the size of the partition that I'm copying to, and I can see the size of the volume I'm trying to copy. (Well, at least I should see those.) Why can't SuperDuper do that, and tell me before I even try to start a copy that there is a size problem? (Yeah, OK, because it thinks us operators are halfway intelligent ...)
