TeX Live Utility allows setting this as a preference, but I don't
think it changes the tlmgr command-line behavior. Sounds like that
is an option I should add. It's off by default for symmetry with
tlmgr's default, but I've had complaints about that.

Question for Norbert: does auto-backup preserve packages that are
removed, even if they've never been updated?
