;;; Commentary:

;; This package allows arbitrary undoing in Gnus buffers.  As all the
;; Gnus buffers aren't very text-oriented (what is in the buffers is
;; just some arbitrary representation of the actual data), normal Emacs
;; undoing doesn't work at all for Gnus.
;; This package works by letting Gnus register functions for reversing
;; actions, and then calling these functions when the user pushes the
;; `undo' key.  As with normal `undo', there it is possible to set
;; undo boundaries and so on.
;; Internally, the undo sequence is represented by the
;; `gnus-undo-actions' list, where each element is a list of functions
;; to be called, in sequence, to undo some action.  (An "action" is a
;; collection of functions.)
;; For instance, a function for killing a group will call
;; `gnus-undo-register' with a function that un-kills the group.  This
;; package will put that function into an action.
