> swap out SD cards and reboot

That's something I was wondering about: is there some state inside the Rpi itself? If not, then a system backup/restore is only a matter of dding on the SDcard.

That's essentially it, nothing is stored anywhere else. You could theoretically just have a bunch of disk images sitting on your desktop and write to the the RPi SD card whatever image you wanted it to run.
