Can I create multiple, sequential .bak files for documents? [closed]

Am aware LO will automagically create one backup file for each document and store it in the backup directory.

What I would like to have done is to save the last x number of backups instead of just one. Thus instead of a single .bak file per document, there is the option for .bak0, .bak1, bak2 ...

This was a common and, I felt, useful feature which was available in software packages in the 1980's and 90's. Is this currently possible in LO? If not, perhaps it could be considered as an option.

Cheers for the lead!

Attempted to install, however it appears to be specifically for Apache OpenOffice. System dependencies check error when attempting to install. 'Extension requires at least reference version 4.0. Am running LO (LMDE).

Will have to do some research in order to determine how to edit the extension.
