No, the "real" solution is to use a VC file system (git, zfs, something 
of that nature) and always save changes every few minutes ala kjots ;-).

(I have, at times, considered doing my backups to git, or at least 
putting large chunks of my disk into a git repo. The biggest problem is 
that - both to not use unreasonable amounts of space, and for 
privacy/security reasons - you need something where you can purge 
content, which most VCS's deliberately don't satisfy.)
