While it might be good to have as a native feature (as it's sort of  
“standard”) what you can do for now is create a new command.

For that command set the input to “Entire Document” and let the  
command e.g. be:

    cat >"$(date +%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S)_${TM_FILENAME:-untitled}"

That will then write the entire document into a file named as the  
current, but putting current date and time as prefix. So should be  
useful for quickly making a backup of current file.
