Hmm.. what changes did you make to the document? I still see
UndoManager.replace in there. I still haven't heard any use cases that
won't be solved better with a beforeEditingAction event (and solved ok
simply using the undo() function until we have a beforeEditingAction

Likewise I still haven't heard of any examples where the apply
function isn't simply init+reapply. So it still seems better to me to
have a init/apply/unapply split rather than a apply/reapply/unapply
