Concretely, here is the current list of 664 checkme: annotations where 
something was suspicious about the PR number (either component mismatch or 
resolved as INVALID).  Would some people like to volunteer to pick up 
sections of this list and, for their section, produce a list of SVN 
revisions (at the end of the checkme line) for which the PR number appears 
to be correct, and a list of mappings from SVN revision to correct PR 
number when the PR number appears to be wrong?  For any that don't get 
reviewed like that we can easily make the script, for the final 
conversion, decline to add a new summary line for any commit where the PR 
number is suspicious.
