Hide the Time Capsule Time Machine backup file

I don't really understand why one would want to do this. Why would you be looking in the backup directory and not want to see the backup file? Does seeing arbitrary files anger the submitter? I must be missing something here.

In any case, this is just hiding a file. Meh.

If you use also your Time Capsule for regular file storage, you might want to just see the files you put on it and not have the finder window unnecessarily cluttered with TM Backups.

Maybe this should be the other way around then:

You're going into an automatically-maintained folder, so you really shouldn't be touching anything in there. Creating a folder in there for your manual backups neatly solves both requirements.
