Automatic backup of open images

Thanks to 'RobA' who discussed this topic here recently, the Python plug-in '' attracted my attention. My work inspired by it is included below.
What I think is new here from the three existing one, that I know. It has a configuration section and the possibility to stop it, so you can restart with a new purpose (configuration) or not.

Backup Working

This is a simple script I wrote to help make backups when working on a large image.

There are no parameters.

It will save a backup copy of your active image as [imagename-ext]-YYYY-MM-DD-HH-MM.xcfgz in the same directory as your active image.
The script has been modified to allow a limit to the number of backups. The default has been set as 5.
To change this edit line 41 of the script:

(maxbackups 5) ; Change this to define the number of backup files to keep!!!

to whatever you want. Set it to 0 for the old behaviour (no limit)
