st: RE: undo
This is a question to the designers and in a sense
can only be answered by the thinking
behind the design.

undo the last change and "get me out of this mess",
otherwise known as exit without saving.
For what you want to be possible, -doedit- must understand
a "set" of changes, or "one go", in the way you do.
What is your definition that can be rendered programmable?
Yet another alternative: you are showing, in effect,
a wish for a more flexible editor. Recommendations
a-plenty can be found in
In my own favourite editor, for example, I can
go backwards and forwards in a set of changes
