Yes. I've come to conclude that version control is a *must* for org files,
given the possibility of accidentally deleting whole trees.

I believe org-attach achieves this end admirably. When you use
org-attach to "attach" a document to a headline, it will deposit the
file (or, if you prefer, a link to the file) in a location defined by
the variable org-attach-directory. The file and the headline are linked
via a global id property. You can open the file from the heading to
which it is attached by calling org-attach again.


Obviously, if these files are ephemeral, you can leave the
org-attach-directory outside of your version control system.
