Universally useful feature: go to last edit point

The Eclipse editor has a feature, activated by Ctrl-Q, of taking your cursor back to the point in your document where you last made an edit. I find this extremely useful, and started to wonder why I haven't seen it in other editors.

Regardless, I have to file this feature away under the category of "user interface best practices", along with filename completion.

This feature was one of the reasons I switched from emacs to vim. A simple ^O brings you back....
