Just to clarify the situation with undo-tree: it doesn't care how or when
undo boundaries are inserted, and never did. The problem was only that
undo boundaries that had nothing to do with self-insert-command were
being *deleted*, due to the subtle interaction between the new Emacs-24
self-insert-command and org-mode's org-self-insert-cluster-for-undo
feature.

I've already pushed a change to the git version of undo-tree to make it
work even if something else deletes undo boundaries that it shouldn't
have touched (e.g. org-mode + Emacs-24). Deleting boundaries that have
nothing to do with self-insert-command is still a bug, in my opinion, but
it's a bug that no longer has catastrophic consequences in
undo-tree-mode.

It sounds from the preceding discussion that the right solution is simply
to disable org-self-insert-cluster-for-undo in Emacs-24, since the
purpose of org-mode's clustering was to recover the normal clustering
behaviour and the standard self-insert-command clustering now works in
org-mode with Emacs-24.

The question of how to customize the clustering granularity seems to me
to be a separate question (which can presumably be solved by making the
hard-coded 20 into a variable).
