As the developer of TARDIS ( :) ) I can say yes it probably is. I refrained from recommending it to you since it won't quite do what you want because it won't back up to 2 different discs - it wasn't ever intended to do that.

The basic idea of it though is probably what you need; you could use rsync and a couple of bash scripts to do manual incremental backups in the style of TARDIS, but without the automatic ageing. I'd be happy to advise if you like.

Nice to see someone recommending it though :)
