For example, at times I've deleted a character, moved point, then deleted
another character.  Undo has undone both deletions as a single operation,
despite the point movement between them.

The lack of configurability seems to be a problem.  There have been
times, testing times, when I've felt that each deletion of a character is
its own atomic operation.  Yet I can't configure undo to respect this
wish.
