bug#39100: EBDB feature request: undo

Jorge P. de Morais Neto
Hi.  It would be nice to have undo in EBDB.  So far I have never
suffered much for the lack of undo (it is only an inconvenience) and of
course I leave it up to you to prioritize this feature, but it would be
useful, though clearly not as important as e. g. better compatibility
(import/export) with other formats.

Regards

Thanks for this.

Just for my own notes, the possible approaches to this right now are
keeping full copies of the previously-edited record in the record's
cache, and allowing the user to cycle through which record is "current",
and/or keeping track of specific field edits via something that looks
like vCard's synchronization mechanism:
