By using my own subversion mirror which spanned the compromise, I've
been able to make this slightly easier for myself when it came to the
moved files.  Still bloody tedious work, and I think I've gone
cross-eyed now.

Where I could, I collated diffs together using the -patches mailing list
as a guide and checked each patch as a whole against what got mailed. 
Then when it matched (they all did) I read it as a whole to
double-check.  Seeing things as one unit helped quite a bit.

These got a fair rewrite a while back, which makes things slightly more

Have you ever, ever felt like this?
Had strange things happen?  Are you going round the twist?
