BASS: Keep multiple auto-saves

Cc: Game: Beneath a Steel Sky


I've just played through Beneath a Steel Sky for the first time, and I had to replay large parts because the game decided to auto-save in an irrecoverable situation:

- In the first case Joey and Rob stood vis-a-vis in a narrow doorway, with neither being able to move (sounds like bug #1314495) - In the second case the game was saved right before the android in the secret cloning facility killed me. I'll try to reproduce that and file a separate bug report.

Since both problems sound like game data issues and are probably not easily fixable in ScummVM I'd like the game to keep the last two or three auto-saves instead. That way, when you find yourself in a hopeless situation you could always go back to a previous snapshot and only replay a few minutes instead of (worst case) the whole game.

Players should use the save game feature rather than relying strictly on the autosave.
