Hi Carsten,

Sorry, I somehow missed this email.

My use case was to easily traverse through a sequence of sparse-tree
searches. Something that I thought might be useful when searching in a
large file. My implementation is probably very suboptimal. I was
hoping to find a way to take a "snapshot" of a sparse tree view, and
then "undo" or "redo" a sparse tree view. By undo/redo I mean
restoring the visibility states of the trees and the highlighted
search text. However I couldn't find a way to get the "snapshot", so I
tried repeating the searches to achieve a similar result.

I have had time to think since I submitted the patch, maybe its
something very specific to how I use org and is probably more
appropriate as a local modification and not for inclusion in org (at
least not in its current form).

Thanks a lot.
