Indeed.  Or, equivalently, changing `undo' so it only calls undo-more with
argument 1 (and use the above while loop between each call to undo-more).

undo-in-region does not implement undo-only, indeed.  I think the way to
implement undo-only is to change undo-make-selective-list so it also
skips redo entries (depending on undo-no-redo, obviously) using the
above while loop.
