Out of interest, why's that a bad thing? We have several editors, for
example: each of them works differently and presents information
differently. Why do we have to have One True Rollback?
I can foresee ways in which different "collapsing" methods could be of
benefit - for example, one rollback tool might want to visualise (via
animation) consecutive edits within a particular changeset to see what
the user was doing.
