Description

Autoconfigbackup right now will keep a complete revision history. Unfortunately, when making bulk changes (such as troubleshooting an outage) it's easy to roll out of that window before deciding to go back to an old backup.

What if there was a user-configurable setting for max number of backups per hour/day/week. If I set that to 20 on the default of 30 total changes, that would keep the last 20 changes for today as well as the last 10 changes from yesterday or before. If I changed cap to 60, I would have 3 days worth.

Another example:
If I changed max per day to 20, max per week to 40, and total backups to 120 - I would have gained point in time backups of 20 for 2 days a week over the last 3 weeks.

This gives me a lot more flexibility to customize my ability to roll back changes by point in time. Right now the Configuration Backup Cache has very little configurability.
