Personally, I would use Save a Copy to create incremental backups of
my xcf files. If my project xcf is "bob.xcf" then every now and then
at a different completion save I do a Save As "bob-1.xcf" then later
"bob-2.xcf" but I continue working in "bob.xcf" as my active image.
(I created a script under 2.6 http://registry.gimp.org/node/14246 to
do this for me, using a date/number append so I don;t have to remember
which save-as version I've already used.)
