    as widely known lion will bring trim support.

    question: is it ok with trim to use the time machine on a separate partition or should i use an external hd?
    same question with the upcoming new feature versions, which is actually kind of a time machine just with smaller steps right? will it wear out the hd too fast?

    Use a separate drive for Time Machine, not a partition on the same drive... You don't want to store your backup on the same drive the original -- you'd loose everything if the drive fails.
