SD/TM: "soft" stopping


I'm moving away from Time Capsule for my whole system backup (although it works fine, it's really too slow). I appreciate the speed of Smart Update.

[Actually, it's fast enough that one could want to schedule a smart update every couple of hours (like TM does), but strangely enough the scheduler of SD assumes one only wants to schedule once a day (why is that? easy fix?)]

One thing that is valuable about TM is that it "knows" how to stop whenever the user decides to stop the machine. ie. if I need to leave out of a rush with may laptop and the backup is running, I can just stop it. It will manage to restart afterwards, consistently.

This does not seem possible with SD. If I stop, I get a scary warning that the drive will be left in an unknown state.

Is there something to do? Couldn't SD have a special "soft" mode where one can stop it when needed (I understand that this may imply some additional space/time requirements for the whole, but I may be willing to pay for those)
