I'm surprised that nobody has yet pointed out that
* Potlatch has a multi-step undo function, even in live mode, and it's
been there since 0.9 was released over two years ago.
* When you select live mode, you get an extra warning that this is not
suitable for beginners, asking you if you want to continue.
* Whenever you edit something in lice mode, a big yellow message at the
bottom of the screen tells you something like "way moved. z to undo".
How is it that we have all these things in place and STILL people claim
that "one wrong click at that point and they can mess up the area for
good without even knowing it"?
