Nope. You're welcome to re-read the original message.

No need to reread it.  But you're welcome to,
as many times as you like.

I meant my message, the one you replied to.

(Perhaps you're trying to pick a nit, in that you
supported that proposal but didn't initiate it.)

Also no.

Do you think ordinary (non-Emacs) Undo plus
Redo is superior to Emacs undo, and for that
reason it should replace it as the default?

It is better controllable. E.g., I can floor 'redo' (or undo-tree-redo) and have Emacs quickly reach a buffer state I expected, and go no further.

Being more familiar to new users doesn't hurt either.

The fact that the current Emacs undo is theoretically more powerful doesn't matter too much when said power is only accessible via an awkward interface.
