CCC Caution... or "why I'm an SD fan."

Doing some testing for a developer under 10.5.1, I mucked up my drive. Fortunately, I had a CCC clone from the day before, and just swapped out one drive for the other.

The good news: it booted, and I only lost about 18 hours worth of stuff.
The bad news: CCC isn't as accurate as SD (nor anywhere near as fast!) Several hidden system files ended up visible; some significant number of permissions were wrong; and some ACLs just "materialized" out of nowhere, requiring a few trips to the terminal.

CCC served it's main purpose: to get me thru until SD for Leopard arrives. But for those who are wondering why spend the bucks on SD... well, those are the reasons.
