Old comments are mostly backed up but suffer from some
encoding issues - that's the first hurdle.

There should be a way to merge old and new comments. I'm not exactly
sure how easy that would be however. Probably pretty easy for a real

I'm not sure how much value is in the old comments, but it's not worth
keeping the AUR locked down while I try to figure it out.
