The key issue here is what a multiple level undo would undo. If
the thought is simply to be able to undo text typed into the
front end with no attempt to undo computations or concern
regarding variable state reflect the result of undoing changes
to text input, that is one thing. But to have variable state,
computations etc reflect the undone changes to text input is
quite something else and probably not possible to do in general.

A better debugger might be useful to me.

What is difficulty here of editing the command that generated
the graphic and re-rendering the graphic?
