Personally I think that 3 is a good reasonable default.  Maybe most
people don't really need 3 versions, but most of the time I'm sure
they can pay for it, they won't even notice.  It can be a life-saver
after you screw up to be able to get back to older versions...  If you
truly have a "big data" problem (few people really do), then you
probably will know what you're doing, and you'll tune the number of
versions appropriately for your needs.
