Create file on disk on new buffer creation

Dear Kate developers,

Thanks for your awesome text editor, it's the best I've found by far and I
use it for everything from note taking to development in several languages.
Love it.

I wanted to know if it would be possible or sensible to add an optional
feature to backup every new buffer on a tmp file on disk in order to
protect unsaved data from system crashes or even user carelessness. Is
there a good reason not to add this as an option? I haven;t thought about
the details, but anything that would allow me to save all buffers by
default, even using a ring file, would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you very much for your hard work.
