Often it is really hard to figure out for how to do something in UNO

So I'm wondering: perhaps is there a way to save UNO state? So that
one could just save the state, change something they're interested in,
next again save the state. And the only thing that's left to do, is
just to peek at the difference between two files with a diff utility
to figure out the properties that were just changed.
Is your interest is in a specific object. For example, what properties changed on the first table.

I can easily compare properties for an object, but, that only deals with simple types such as strings and numbers. So, I can inspect an object and display the values of all the simple types with the attribute names and values. I can then save this in a text file, make a change to the object, then check the values again.

First problem is that I am only looking at simple types. Sure, I could change my inspection code to attempt to expand attributes that are other UNO services, but, I would need to watch for referential loops (like if a table refers to the owning document that would then refer to that table).
