That is exactly what it currently does not do.

Let's say that we have an event chain:

1. User selects both tracks, first solo.
2. Any Effect
3. (2 tracks selected, First solo.)
4. User deselects first track and disables solo state.
5. Any effect, e.g. Time Shift
6. Undo

Currently, The selection and solo/mute states go back to step 3 and
not to the stage just before the time shift is executed.

Any changes you make inbetween effect calls, with regard to selection
or state, are therefore lost--clearly a bug.

In other words, the undo points are set after an effect instead of before.
