For some reason Xahlee's post is missing from my server... you're

Thats a good point... I wasn't really thinking about that but yes,
having a handy marker where input started and ends would lend a big
helping hand to making a nicer undo.

With a little practice here... I'm starting to think Drews' suggestion
