This is done in KDevelop side. I would be open to adding a setting for this.

That said, I think that it could make sense to actually fix the issue that
the undo stack is lost when a file is saved. An approximation to this
shouldn't be too hard and it would be immensely awesome (also it's done by
other editors).
