In case anyone lacks context, here's what the HIG says about "keep":
it's saving a copy/backup file:
"activities can ... specify "keep-hints" which prompt the system to
keep a copy. ... a child may choose to invoke a keep-hint by
selecting the "keep in journal" button ..."
Are there any other discussions like "activity versioning" and "datastore
versioning" that are relevant that people could share for context?
