So I want to set up Superduper to be scheduled to do automated "smart updates" to it's backup on a regular basis.. but I do *not* want it and Timemachine trying to backup at the same time and slow each other down.

Any ideas to tell TM to turn off at the beginning of a backup and turn back on at the end?

No documented way, no...

What about an undocumented way? ;-)

Perfect. That's more than acceptable given the current situations.

Hopefully Apple will publish an Applescript dictionary to support something like this in a more "official" capacity.

Thanks again.
