I personally turn backup feature to off because my working folder usually contains a few fcstd files i am working on all having nice thumbnail preview and it's too much clutter having backup files there. Having just one level of backup doesn’t allow to "go back in time" all that much and i would like to sometimes but imagine having setting set to lets say 5 and having 10 (100) fcstd files in working folder. That gives 10 (100) fcstd files and 50 (500) backup files all inside single folder... If there would be backup folder i wouldn't have issue setting backup option to highest possible 99 to be honest i have enough space on my drive... but as all the files are cluttered inside the same folder i usually just turn backup off.
Option 2 would probably solve potential issues you listed:
-Backups would still be found in the same folder the original files are with the main difference backups would be moved to backup folder.
-Duplicate file names wouldn't be an issue the situation would be the same as it is now.
