Some time ago I played with using bzr to be able to go back and forth on 
revisions of system configuration files and data. We could through a UI 
on top of it to enable users to actively mark restore points , or use 
some hook such that it would be configurable to have bzr take automatic 
snapshots of system areas before dist-upgrades, problematic package 
installs, running community scripts etc.
