Undo last move button

Hi all.

Dmitry (L716) and I were playing Brandubh and, while chatting about our level gap increasing in his favour, he wrote that there was missing an "undo" button on the site.

I think this is a good idea when the goal of the game is to improve our play. Mostly because in Brandubh game, the first mistake often leads irretrievably to defeat.

The mechanism could be as follows:
  • Player 1 presses the Undo button to request an annulment of his last move (as in "Offer draw")
  • If player 2 accepts, the game restarts just before player 1's last move.
Maybe we can also consider there would be no rating of the game once an Undo sequence occurred at least once.

What do you think of it? (please use the poll and every kind of comment will be welcome).
