You make a very good point which applies to ALL apps which create backup files.

It would certainly be better if there was a ~/Desktop/Backup/" directory where all of the 
backups that would normally go in: ~/Desktop normally go.

Unless someone implements that feature, the only thing I can think of is a cron job that 
runs every 5 minutes (or less if you have the processor power) and executes a script that 
moves the backup files off of your desktop.
