Yes, the .ardour file stores all the information about the session,
and it does make sense to keep older versions, but for easy session
and backup management, it makes sense to take snapshots along the
way and use those if/when you want to go back to an earlier point.
Taking a snapshot creates an .ardour file with the snapshot name
rather than the session name, allowing you to go back to that mix.
