I think this would be a really important feature for denemo: save a backup for each file with the same name but with the suffix .denemo~ . This would work as follows: each time you save and overwrite an existing file, instead of overwriting File.denemo, you rename it to File.denemo~ (overwriting the old File.denemo~) and save the current as File.denemo .

The text editor jEdit does something like this. I think it would help prevent severe loss of data on crashes that corrupt the file. I have experienced such crashes that leave the .denemo impossible to load.
