If your using substacks you can save in different states (upon any 
changes or significant changes) with a smart numbering system(backup 
system) and then if/when the user saves, it writes a final version and 
deletes the previous ones.
That's the simpler way.
Other wise all kinds of things need to be kept track off to be able to 
undo them.
