That's why we use machines to do this kind of work for us. Also, a
lovely idea to restore comments that are older than two years, that'll
be extremely beneficial to the quality of the aur.
Other thoughts on this, we don't need comments on packages that don't
exist any more, that were deleted already or are made by users which
aren't in the db any more.
If I understood correctly, none of that data is currently in the aur's
comments? or all?
