Protecting cloned disk?

I'm thinking about setting a system in which I would clone an internal SATA drive in my Powermac G5 to an external FireWire drive using SuperDuper. The cloning would happen very often (sometimes almost daily) but not in a regular fashion, i.e. scheduling probably wouldn't be the optimal way. The thing I'm worrying about in this setup is that I'd have to start these cloning processes manually (which is essentially error-prone) and the worst case scenario would of course be that I cloned accidentally vice versa from FW disk back to SATA losing all new work. I mean if you have intensively worked several hours on something and after that you might be quite unfocused the possibility of such user error might not be that far-fetched...

So, I'm wondering, would it be possible to set up somekind of a backup "scheme", specifying the origin and destination drives, which would then be password locked, for example, or even better, would there be a way to protect the original disk, so that SuperDuper actually never wrote anything to that disk.
