Programmatically save image, and also do it periodically

I'm not a Squeak user, but in VisualWorks if you work in chunks and publish your work in progress few times a day you can easily recover anything in between from a change set in a minute or two at most depending on complexity of changes. Doesn't Squeak have the same capability? Image auto save just smells wrong to me.

Ah, thank you for the warning! Perhaps I will use Save as New Version, (and 
set the timer a bit longer :-)
