Commit it to a git repository. All the generations have the same name,
but you can compare them, explore past versions, etc, etc, etc, with a
rich set of tools. And it's easy to invoke git from a program (if you
need information from stdout, most git commands accept a "--porcelain"
parameter), so you can fully automate.
