The pref backups.number_of_prefs_copies used to work, and was good for
versioning prefs.js in case you broke something.  Now it doesn't work, but it
still appears in all.js.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
This appears to be either invalid or a dup of bug 246722 or bug 253259. 
According to those bugs, this pref is now intentionally obsoleted and disabled.
Good catch, except those are for Seamonkey.  This is for Firefox.  Ok, so this
is obsoleted.  What replaced it?
the prefs backend is shared, so it doesn't matter which is which.  There isn't a
pref to dictate this any more, the need to have an arbitrary number of backups
was dealt with by using the "safe" write to disk function.
