Undo tree had some problems in the past. But if you want the basic
undo/redo behavior there is something already in vanilla (as usual a bit

(global-set-key [remap undo] 'undo-only)
(global-set-key (kbd "C-M-_") 'undo-redo)

which I discovered after asking here and fighting with undo tree for
almost a year.

Good point.

undo-tree has been stable for me lately, but it might be overkill for a lot of users, and the default undo behavior is... exotic.

So I think ideally we'd switch to the above key mappings by default. But since this is going to be a hard sell, at least this option should be better documented/advertised, maybe even on the new splash screen people have imagined/mentioned.
