When working with a MVC-approach, the actions you the user can invoke on the
model could be created as objects that know how to undo/invert their
effects. Then you store a list of these actions and performing undo takes
the last action and apply its inverted action to your model. Right from my
head:

class InsertAction:
def __init__(_, index, needle):
_.index = index
_.needle = needle

def do(_, haystack):
haystack[index:index] = _.needle

def undo(_, haystack):
del haystack[_.index : _.index + len(_.needle)]
Hope this gives you an idea. You can also have to types of actions -
primitive and complex. Performing undo will then undo all primitve actions
until the action queue is empty or a complex actions is reached. This
allows e.g. in a text-editor to perform undo subsequently inserted
characters at once.
