Updated the patch for the current state of git.  It's still only a partial patch, but meanwhile I think it is the better behavior.

Currently nano undoes each and every stroke of the Enter key separately.  Attached patch undoes (and redoes) a series of consecutive Enters as a unit.

Don't know if this is a good idea -- whether people would not prefer each newline to be undone on its own, as it does now.  Also, the patch is not complete: also consecutive line joins would have to be undone (and redone) as a whole.

(Anyway, I just saw the similarity, and thought: let's save some code.  Fifteen lines shave off.)
