It'd be nice to see how Google Docs does its versioning and try to model something like that for org. I think it's a version per data saved. I currently use a cron, but I see some value in versioning after each save.

I rarely thought about the problem of transactional operations in
org-mode. From the standpoint you mentioned, my dream doesn't look that
nice anymore.

A simple cron job for committing doesn't sound that bad anymore ;-)

Thanks for saving me much work.
