you could write this more flexible using a loop like this:

while [ "$BKPLIMIT" -gt 0 ]; do
  BKPSFX="$BKPLIMIT"
  BKPLIMIT=`expr $BKPLIMIT - 1`
  [ -f "$1.${BKPLIMIT}.gz" ] && \
    mv "${1}.${BKPLIMIT}.gz" "${1}.${BKPSFX}.gz"
done;

mv "$1.gz" "${1}.0.gz"

and have people define the number of compressed files they want to keep
(BKPLIMIT) somewhere towards the top of the script.

just an idea,
