From the requirements doc:

It should be possible to fairly easily undo any admin/mod action done through the Web interface, or even to undo every mod action since a particular time.

It would be neat if this could be extended to all mod-like actions (edit, deletes, etc.) even at the user level. For example, if a user makes a stupid edit to one of their posts, instead of having to contact an admin to undo it (assuming they lost the original text), they could undo it themselves. Now, I realize that this isn't very useful, but bear with me...

Since the undo functionality would extend all the way down to the user level, it could also be leveraged by mods to undo their own moderation actions. Currently, if a mod screws up and deletes something by accident, they have to go through the same appeals process to the admins that users have to go through. It would be nice if they could undo their own action themselves. Of course, they wouldn't be allowed to undo the actions of other mods, because that's supposed to be done through an appeal. It would only be used by the actioning mod to fix mistakes that they made.

This would be awesome and I have personally thought about making the backend very similar to a SCM. However, this may take way more engineering than it's worth. We'll definitely think about this one carefully.
