auto-backup before overwrite

I would like to have the option of saving a backup of a file before over-writing. Sometimes either I or one of the people I work with end up editing the same file near the same time and over-ride each other's work. CVS is overkill, but it would be nice to have a client automatically copy the soon-to-be overwritten file to another, specified, backup directory. I first thought this would be a good feature for server software, but then I realized I log into about a dozen sites and it would be better if my client software could perform this function.

Since it's possible to copy and paste and move remote directories, would it be possible to add this feature?

Sorry for the verbose post.

Just so you know, I did drop a bit in the Kagi donate bucket so I didn't feel too bad asking for this feature. ;-)

Thanks,
Hans

Re: auto-backup before overwrite

OK, I consider that. I may not be that difficult to implement. I suppose you want to move remote file-to-be-overwritten to some fixed remote directory?

It would be lovely if that was definable... a full path or something. And, if you could timestamp them with an epoch or something sortable, such as:

1090619132-index.html
1090619242-index.html
1090619336-index.html

etc.

Thanks Martin

Hans
