Well, frankly it sounds mostly irrelevant.  I am not talking
about undo along file/selection boundaries.  I am talking about
undo along "type of change" boundaries.

If you're saying that you should be able to eventually mix the
two ideas in the same command, I would agree with that.  But
nothing about selection is a prerequisite to what I'm proposing.
