Is there a lightweight tool for backing up (and rolling back) packages, made specifically for dealing with Java files. Subversion, CVS, Git are really more sophisticated (and somewhat invasive) than I really think I need. I also don't want a lot of extra features other than this simple task. Please advise.

I really do think Git might be your best bet here, as it does not require you to set up a central repository like you'd need with Subversion or CVS. There's also plenty of documentation on how it works, and it integrates well with most IDE's.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
