hitting save during a session would create 1.1.0, 1.2.0, 1.3.0

after closing a file, next open would start 2.0.0

It would then be nice to have a version manager that would let you 'save version as' and pick any previous #.#.# version and save it out as a new name.

The optimize function could then be changed to include an option to purge all versions but the most recent #.#.#

This could quickly make files very large, so it could be limited to a certain number of versions before you purge - or even only keep the x.x.# versions within a session.

+1 to all of this - but I wouldn't think that the file size would get too huge because for the most part no audio would need to be copied with each 'version' (only if you wrote new audio files).
