I can help out as well, though I am not a trusted user so I wonder how much I can really help. But my offer is there. :)

The other problem is merging this with new comments that have been posted since the update. No one knows a reliable way to do this automatically, correct? And it would require adding countless database entries by hand? I am also prepared to get started on this brute force work. I will have several hours per week to devote to it. Please give me what I need to contribute! Thanks.
