comment Can Time Capsule make multiple disk images?
@Mads did not say he wanted to do backups both before and after an OS upgrade, he said that wanted to save 2 disk images and then some backups.

comment Can Time Capsule make multiple disk images?
I'm sorry I mixed up CPU ID vs MAC Address, but same difference: he is not changing any of those things (nor the disk GUID). By "just work", I mean he will be able to access his backups after he updates his OS, since the backup format has not changed (AFAIK).

comment Can Time Capsule make multiple disk images?
Yes, inside the high-level disk image (which is all you see in Finder), there are indeed files, directories, ... -- Just as an "App" is really a directory tree. But my point is still valid. He is not changing CPUs, and I believe his backups may "just work".

comment Knowing user is sshing in from a shell script?
Gwawity: I disagree from a shell script. If doing this from Python or C, I would agree, but from a shell script I would argue against parsing this (binary) file directly. But others have suggested using the SSH_* environment variables, which is a better answer.
