WordPress plugin restoration point
Would be great to have WordPress plugins to be able to have restoration points on a plugin upgrade basis and not only for WordPress major upgrades.
This way, WordPress plugins can be managed individually with more control over them.
We’d like to introduce this feature, but we’ll have to solve certain technical difficulties first (for example, properly handle cases where database structure is updated by a plugin and you want to roll the changes back). We’re positive that we can overcome these difficulties, though.

And themes as well.
I always thought this was already like this. Even from the description it is not clear, that restore points are only created for WordPress Core updates and cloning...
I think, this is not really questionable, that it should be possible to always create a restore point, even on plugin and theme updates.
