AFAICT, Allan is not very fond of the way chunk undos behave.  I'm not 
sure I'm all for it either, but a preference would sure be nice. Back 
in the first release I suggested to Allan that he used timed keypressed 
to determine the undo chunks, so that it's a bit smarter and doesn't 
undo too much.

Being around since 1.0, (reg #70), I can tell you it's got much faster 
in many aspects, and slower in things that were changed recently. Tab 
switching is really bugging me with b17. App switching is just fine
