Where is Gmail task undo delete function

Happy New Year 2009!

I have bad memory, I use Palm to record my todo list. Sometimes I use the yellow stickies software to record down my todo list on my desktop and notebook.

When Gmail launch task function, I am happy with it, because I can use it as the yellow stickies software, and I can access to it through web. After I have been using it for a while, there is one thing I need to complain about the software.

I write down the task list because I will forget what I am going to do. I accidentally deleted a task entry by clicking on the dusbin icon, the entry just gone, and there is NO UNDO! I can not remember what I have deleted (that's the reason I write it down). Some other users having the same problem.

Having an undo function will be good. For me, a delete icon shouldn't exist, you don't need to delete a task, you just tick and complete it. If you need to remove it, click on Actions, Clear completed tasks, this is a 2 step actions, much safer.

Google has been writing good software, just need minor improvement.

Please fix this ASAP. I just lost my task and I've got no idea what it was.
