This patch causes the changed area to become selected during undo/redo operations.
This will not reset the selection to what it was before the editing operation, but it gives very good
user feedback as to what changed and in many cases does restore the selection. I'm working on
a patch for that but due to a few outstanding bugs it may be a while before I submit it.

I would appreciate some people giving it a try and giving some feedback as to how good/terrible
this would be. This is how many modern word processors work.

    As far as I know, Steve has implemented this in CVS. Team
    to try it out and respond.

    (I think it's a good idea, since I frequently use undo/redo
    to review the changes I've made in a file. I frequently get
    lost trying to figure out what changed, so the selection
    feedback seems natural. Still haven't tried it yet,
    though.)
