It would be possible to write a Wing extension script to do this, but my 
suggestion would be to use a version control system such as mercurial 
(hg) or git.  Version control systems have been used by developers for 
years to keep track of changes in source code and provide a lot more 
features than a simple system of keeping numbered files.



BTW, it's good practice to send a message with a new subject when asking 
a new question on a mailing list rather than replying to a digest message.
