I think this does exactly what I want with one untestable feature - I 
can't tell if it will combine my edit records if they are more than 
<some time period> apart. (Not a necessity in my case, just a nice-to-have.)

I edited the sandbox twice and only my last edit showed. But neither 
one wiped out your edit record. Looks good to me. Thanks!
