(Okay, I'm speculating wildly here...)
But ChangeSets _could_, couldn't they, with some modification to the
way they work?
I'm imagining that when you file in a ChangeSet (let's say Foo.cs)
into your image (Bar.image), your image is writing out information to
it's Bar.changes file that reflect the things Foo.cs is doing to your
image. Then, to back out, you could use a currently fictional "Undo"
feature which would allow you to back up steps as recorded in
This may necessitate modifications to userland tools to deal with
.changes file, and perhaps some modification to the information
and/or format of information stored in .changes files, but I don't
think it would be too drastic and I don't think it would have much
with the implementation of ChangeSets themselves.
