I use (well, getting better at using) a version control software for projects,
'fossil'.  it is lightweight and has a web interface[*].  I'm also getting into
the habit of always using an .ini file, so I can just do 'povray xyz' or 'povray
xyx[final]' instead of having to abort because I forgot some command-line

can't think of any, do you have anything specific in mind?
