Has any thought been given to handling backups similarly to mg, rather than sprinkling them all over the filesystem like emacsen do by default?

     Backup files have a ‘~’ character appended to the file name and are created in the current working
     directory by default.  Whether to create backup files or not can be toggled with the make-backup-files
     command.  The backup file location can either be in the current working directory, or all backups can
     be moved to a ~/.mg.d directory where files retain their path name to retain uniqueness.  Use the
     backup-to-home-directory to alternate between these two locations.  Further, if any application creates
     backup files in /tmp, these can be left with the leave-tmpdir-backups command.

qemacs does the first, does not do the second.
