If Scintilla would offer read-only access to the items of the Undo history, the editor could implement features like:

+ save Undo history to file,
+ redo specific action,
+ copy item into clipboard, e.g. for later paste,
...

Please implement the ability to fetch all or individual items from the undo history.

    It would be useful to some clients, so I'd probably accept a good implementation. However, I wouldn't want this to restrict future changes to undo. One change that may be made is to avoid storing the text of insertions in the undo stack as that text has just been inserted into the document where it can be recovered when needed for redo.
