Hmm. Well, I guess you must be right. Jim said the same thing. But what
specifically makes it impossible?

It seems to me that if we make the syntax very general (no automatic
restore of back versions of any such thing), it should be possible. If
the old versions are simply made available for reading, then what could
be the problem?
