But maybe not in any version published yet.

What this represents is a _promise_ on Arch's part to never make a
change in Arch behavior in which a backup file is deleted by Arch.
Therefore you can protect a file against deletion by current _and_
future versions of tla by declaring it a backup.

I suspect "backup" probably is just a useful feature in some future
Grand Plan for World Domination in which inventory(1arch) replaces
find(1), rather than something that is particularly relevant to Arch.
