When you are in the project, type the following into a TextMorph
    Project current version: 0
and press CTRL+D (doIt). Next time, the project will be saved as 
<Project>.001.pr. You can verify the current version with the text:
   Project current currentVersionNumber

and press CTRL+P (printIt)

You don't need to break out of Etoys. Just use a TextMorph. The code is 
simple. If you wish to change the version of a project other than the current 
one. Use:

    (Project named: 'MyProject') version: 0
