Dhruva Krishnamurthy has explained what "dumped" means, so i just
emphasize that "un" in this context is more suitably thought of as
"not-yet".  the following analogy does not hold:

  do : undo :: dump : undump

however, the following does:

  done : undone :: dumped : undumped

of course, if you're a monkey on the tree, "reverse undo" may make
sense after all (when upside down ;-), so apologies to all monkeys
on trees out there who may have been unintentionally unhinged by
this untroduction...
