How about having rg rename the original file to have the current date/time, then saving the new. This way each time you save, you have a backup of the previous version. Over time it will generate a mess of files, but we could have it limit the number of backups to, say, 10 or so by deleting the oldest backup.

  Gnucash does this.

Another option would be to just keep a single previous version with a tilde "~" at the end of the file. This is a common approach and should be good enough for the situation you are describing.

  These seem more conventional and useful than a pop-up to me.

Is it possible to set Rosegarden so it *always* asks for confirmation when
saving a project? If not can it be added as an option?

The reason I ask is that there have been a few times where I've forgotten I've
been reworking an existing project (gone away from lunch etc.) then carried on
working for while and hit save without thinking wiping out the original work
as a result. So far, this has not been fatal as I always keep duplicates, but
I'd rather not take risks.
