--- Comment #10 from Heiko Tietze <tietze.heiko at gmail.com> ---
We discussed the topic in the design meeting. First of all you can select and
cut/delete to "undo" input, which of course is a bit more interaction. The
Microsoft undo buffer takes all input until the next paragraph (Enter) or when
a different function than input is executed, for example auto correction,
formatting, selection. Our fine-grained buffer is definitely better than this

However, never settle and maybe we can introduce an option to "[ ] Chunk input
for Undo" that takes all typing until the next punctuation mark. Our dummy text
would be split like this:

He heard quiet steps behind him. 
That didn't bode well. 
Who could be following him this late at night:
 and in this deadbeat part of town? 
And at this particular moment, 
just after he pulled off the big time and was making off with the greenbacks. 

As a closed task it might be an interesting GSoC project.
