I don't want something that saves at regular intervals, because 
inevitably it will save part way through a long set of changes, and 
produce something inconsistent. Maybe some option to take a copy the 
file each time it is saved, to a stack of back versions.

Also, when Mathematica starts to get into a mess - as inevitably it does 
now and again - I don't really want it writing backup files, etc.

I am not sure there is a good fully automatic solution to the problem.
