How to Backup & Restore Looks in a Looker.com-hosted instance?

We have an internal application that uses the Looker API on a Looker instance hosted by Looker.com.  The application creates and updates Looks.  How can we back up these Looks and restore them individually?

I found documentation about backing up self-managed Looker installations.  I found only one mention of backups of hosted Looker:

Starting in Looker 7.6, automatic backups of Looker’s i__looker internal database to an S3 bucket are no longer supported. Looker-hosted instances are still backed up daily through a separate process, but backup files cannot be sent to a custom S3 bucket.

If you create a script using the Gazer CLI and AWS CLI, you may be able to back up Look.
