An excellent suggestion. If someone has the answer or if that could be added for the future I would like that also. I work mainly in three languages (Ada, Modula-2 and Delphi) and in two of those (Ada and Modula-2) I have exactly the same problem with only getting one .bak file if I edit both files of a single package (i.e. MyFile.ads and MyFile.adb for Ada and MyFile.def and MyFile.mod for Modula-2)

I would imagine that the idea of replacing the extension with .bak all the time is just a holdover from DOS days so no reason that it couldn’t be changed now to simply add on .bak right?
