What I do have is an extensive list of the programs and situations I
would like to be on one page and undo something on some other page:

1. ---

Maybe we also need these other essential features:

1. Be able to open a document and undo the last operation on the
document before it was saved.

2. Be able to have one document open and undo an operation on some other
open document, or one saved on disk.

3. Be able to undo the last operation on someone else's computer who is
also running Scribus.

I think that signs of intelligence would be that if you're going to undo
"something" on some other page, maybe you should look at the action
history to see what you're going to undo, rather than wanting to play a
GUI video game of undoing-redoing-undoing just for the cool visual effect.
