Perhaps my estimate was low.  I hadn't done any work with creating
issues on github (only extracting them from Trac into a form that maps
onto github issues), but I expect the PyGithub library
(https://github.com/jacquev6/PyGithub) helps make the rest of the work
easier.  Glad to hear it helped.

Based on that issue, it looks like I wasn't careful enough in temporal
ordering of comments, not that it's that critical.

Aric, is the code you ended up using available somewhere?
