The behavior of redo is indeed an improvement -- it provides the
needed functionality -- but that  package corrupts the buffer.

If that bug were fixed in both emacs and xemacs, I think that there
would be no complaints about undo at all.

(Oh, some people might suggest branching or viewing the history or a
different type of bunching or something, but the lack of a true redo
(as opposed to undoing the undo) is IMO among the biggest usability
issues in all of emacs-dom.)

Myalgic encephalomyelitis denialism is causing death (decades early;
Jason et al. 2006) and severe suffering, pain, and disability (worse
than nearly all other serious diseases studied; Schweitzer et al.
1995) and grossly corrupting science.  The denialism is worse than it
ever was with even AIDS or MS.
