Workspace Versioning

It would be great to have a built-in workspace versioning for managing changes in the workspace.

Today, we have to workaround that using a time-based download of the workspace json and `git push`ing it to be "safe".

Meanwhile this time-based schedule, we are susceptible to loosing hours of work if something goes wrong, like miss deleting a node, opening a node that is being edited by another person and edit it too, etc.

    Perhaps some kind of integration with GitHub would be useful

    This is explicitly requested by our client Westpac Banking Corporation in Australia.

    Customer at Westpac wants versioning at the individual intent/entity/response level. They said this is already available on a competing offering.

    Would be appreciated here aswell. Now we're trying to back-up the workspace json with a certain date and put it on Git.
