--Even finite undo (with redo) would be great. 

--A simple(r) way to change the working directory for input/output operations from the default (root) to the directory of the current notebook. The only way I know how is

SetDirectory[ToFileName[
  Extract[
   "FileName" /. NotebookInformation[EvaluationNotebook[]], {1}, 
       FrontEnd`FileName]]]

Being incapable of memorizing it, I save this monstrosity in a safe vault and recycle it from notebook to notebook.
