Backups in maintainer scripts

I'm replacing files in the maintainer script of a
package, but I would like to maintain backups of these
files. Is there any good practice about that (eg: like
renaming the old file to filename~ or filename.old)?

I would also like to know if dpkg makes any backups
when installing packages, and if I can rely on them
being present when removing a package.
