;; Formal description for savannah:
;; undo-browse.el is a powerful undo-history browser for
;; \(X)Emacs. Consider a movie of your document starting from the oldest
;; change to the current version. With undo-browse, you can ask it to go
;; back or forth framewise in this movie. Or you can simply let the movie
;; run either direction. When you like a particular frame and want to
;; retain it, you can choose to retain it in one of several ways, emacs
;; style, redo style, and other styles.
;; URL:
;; Source code URL:
;; The idea for undo-browse.el came from discussions on the irc
;; channel, #emacs. There are a host of other ideas we want to
;; implement collaboratively, including some bugfixing, ensuring
;; Xemacs compatibility, color-coding, etc., so we would appreciate a
;; CVS account.

;;; Commentary:
(defconst ub-commentary
The current state of the buffer is the END frame in the
entire movie.
The concept employed is that whichever frame of the movie we are, we
maintain 2 histories:
* The usual buffer-undo-history, which contains all information needed
to get us to the START frame -- well not exactly. It is not usual in
the sense that emacs' buffer-undo-history first gets you to future,
and then to the past. Our buffer-undo-history contains only the
past information.
* A ub-buffer-future, which is really a history that contains all
information needed to get us to the END frame.
With these two, it becomes very easy to go a frame backward or forward
at any given time.
We have grand plans for future. See introduction for now.
It works here without problems, and I have done extensive testing. I
am not however, not sure that it leaves everything the internals
buffer-undo-history for the current buffer in its original state, even
though it may leave it in an equivalent state. So, use at your own
risk and back up your file before trying this file on that work. If
you use this author's mkback.el, you can plug it into this, See

;;; TO DO:
(defconst ub-todo
* Allow saving undo-history alongside files -- session.el and
desktop.el don't do that, right?
* browse-undo-list should probably also allow the user to trim the
buffer-undo-list by clicking on a relevant point.
* Color-coding.
* It loses the buffer-time-stamp status and marks it modified..
* It works more-or-less perfectly now re: not mauing the
buffer-undo-list, but remains a hack.
* If the user was using hilit-chg.el already, we need to treat the user
properly after exiting undo-browse
* When the user toggles the arrow of time, we end up generating false
data-loss warnings.
