Though that may seem boring and not shiny enough to excite people, my
personal number one missing feature is general purpose undo/redo
support at a low level in the stack.

Currently, some applications have undo, other don't. Amongst those that
have it, they often only have it for a small number of specific widgets
(e.g. GtkTextView) or actions, and the code is often copy/pasted around.
If it's not copy/pasted around, risks are that the behaviour gets
inconsistent amongst applications etc.

I absolutely agree with [1] that missing undo support is one of the
biggest current usability flaws, and I think the stack should encourage
its implementation in applications by offering a nice framework for it.
