I'd agree with Paul here. Making a selection has no effect by itself,
it's more like setting a parameter for a future operation, similar to
e.g. filling in a filename in a load/save dialog. If you cancel the
dialog nothing has happened. I wouldn't want an undo list to be
cluttered with that...

Don't know if Ardour is organised this way, but it would be perfectly
possible for selections to exist only in the GUI, and be given to the
'model' as parameters only if and when a command is issued. If that's
the case bringing them into the undo system could be quite hard.


Follie! Follie! Delirio vano è questo !
