Not a lot... the relevant bugs are still open, and I don't recall any
clear agreement on whether we should have Undo (last micro-change),
Revert (which is to Cancel as Apply is to OK), or (Reset to) Defaults. 
I think the majority vote was for Undo, though, even though it has more
potential to leave settings in an unstable state than the other two, so
I'm prepared to accept defeat on that one :)
