You could make use of the undo facility itself by using the .note method
of a transaction from Python:

t = get_transaction()
t.note('Did something')

This information will show up in the undo log.

You cannot do this from a Python Script, you'll need to do it from
within Product code or from an external method after each event of
significance in your site.
