I don't see why the problems with some ranges of commits should prevent us 
doing better for those ranges where there are no such problems.  I thought 
reposurgeon (I haven't looked at it) had the ability to postprocess 
commits and dig out additional info, and assumed it would be more or less 
trivial to add such sed-greping.


Ciao,
Michael.
