However, global undo/redo is a lot less flexible than per-sheet. I've
had a few cases where I needed to undo a change on a specific sheet
after doing something else on another sheet.

Especially for global changes I might want to roll back a change on all
but one sheet, and then handle that sheet manually because I did
something else on top.

Also, global undo/redo might become a bit more complicated by shared
subsheets, which is also something I use often.
