Presumably, you are talking about vi's (and vim's) habit of writing over
changes that have been undone.

This problem has been nullified in Vim 7 by the addition of undo
branches. You can now go back to the text after any change -- even if
they were undone.

Another nice thing is that changes are also now timestamped. You can go
backward/forwawrd in time in the buffer (e.g. ":earlier 10m" goes to the
text as it was ten minutes earlier).
