I don't know, but you can have virtually
unlimited undo in practice because what is
stored is just text, and on today's HDs which
can save tons of multimedia, what in past days
would amount to huge archives, there is
certainly room for all the undos anyone would
ever care for.

quantities of text data perhaps another column
is called for instead? :)
