Replay Edits

Being in the zone is amazing: your productivity skyrockets and the code just flows. Then somebody micromanages talks to you, the boss starts to scream discuss things on the phone, or it’s lunch time and this company won’t give back any minute you waste before starting to eat. Since this hapenned to me at least once, I’ve been looking for a simple way to get back my productivity when I resume my job. I’ve found that the best way for me is just doing insane amounts of Ctrl+Z and Ctrl+Shift+Z/Ctrl+Y to see what I did and where did I did it. But this is a tiresome activity, the kind that I expect to be automated. So why not add a simple option in your text editor, a nice Replay Edits that’ll just play in real time edits from last saved state to current state? I want this, and if you know something like this, PLEASE tell me, I’m all ears.
