Yes, this sounds like a good idea to add.  I've wanted something like 
this myself.  Thanks for the suggestion.

Note that the forward/back buttons at top left of editor may help in 
some cases.  However, those don't go just to edit locations but also can 
be used for going back from goto-defn and similar.  Also, right clicking 
on the stick pin icon in top right of editor brings up a list of files 
visited in that split but that is also not just places edited and 
doesn't handle edits in two different places in a file.
