It's very easy to inadvertently move a snap line (e.g. when trying to click on
the border of something that has snapped to it). This action doesn't show up in
the Undo/Redo list, so you can't put it back unless you've written down the
position of the snap line beforehand.

We have to think about whether we really need Undo for this operation.

Well, if you use a snap line in a presentation, and accidentally move it when 
you are nearly done, the whole presentation has to be laid out again because 
none of the existing objects are on the snap line anymore.

An alternative solution would be to have snap lines themselves snap to 
objects, so that they could be more easily moved back to their previous 

But I'm not certain I understand "whether we really need undo". One always 
needs undo. If I make some other mistake, then move a snap line, then undo, I 
don't get back to the state I was in before I made the mistake. It doesn't 
make sense for an undo operation to invent a new state.
