Have you tried alt-left and alt-right?  Those are also the right/left 
arrows in top left of the editor area.  They're based on visits and not 
edits, so not quite what you're asking for but may suffice.  We also 
will try to add edit history at some point, as I agree that would be useful.

Thanks,
