Btw, some programs use a reverse way of dealing with revisions. They rotate
the existent files, so the newest version of the file is always
file.kra # 05.01.11
file~1.kra # 04.01.11
file~2.kra # 03.01.11
file.kra # 06.01.11
file~1.kra # 05.01.11
file~2.kra # 04.01.11
file~3.kra # 03.01.11
That is just an idea. No insisting on it. I'm not sure about the pros and
