Superduper!, Windows and Winclone
I have found several thread here where people ask for Windows support.

Early I would used "winclone", a nice freeware app that let you cloning and restoring Windows partions, booting in OSX System.

Now winclone had been discontinued, and it doesn't work with Snowleopard.
At the moment you can only use solutions that require you have boot from usb or CD, a workflow I have found very slow.

So as the winclone code is "inactived" why not resume it for pro version of Superduper! ? You could try to ask for it to the winclone author.

Just a suggestion i hope could make more easy the job of yours developers.
