Take a look at "rsnapshot". It uses "rsync --link-dest" and/or "cp -
al" to do exactly what you like about "cp --backup=t". It maintains
a series of snapshots of the filesystem with separate copies of
changed files but only one copy of unchanged files.
rsnapshot overlays all that with a simple automatic way of pruning
the older snapshots after they have aged appropriately.
