getting OT but BBEdit (and TW?) will save a back up copy for every time
you save, and they recently got very excited on the list about writing a
script that auto-saved and cleaned up previous versions. I just save a
lot (almost all my scripts have a line to save) and occasionally dump
the hundreds of versions in the backup folder. So BBEdit has good
paranoia settings if that matters. just a FYI.
