      I would also need such a feature. I will often either hold down 'u' or
      use :earlier 24h or whatever, to return to the state of the buffer
      when I started editing.

      I do think that purging the undo history could be useful in some
      situations. If it is complicated to do (using a function as shown in
      this thread), we should probably put an example of how to do it in
      the :help or add a command to do it.
