Summary0002814: show=addtagentityrel: improve "history" tab with creqs from previous systems (e.g. agenntb)
DescriptionThis is part 1 of a 2-part request. I'll be submitting the next part in a minute. The request is divided in 2 parts because they are essentially different things, though each part only achieves its complete usefulness when the other is also implemented; I envision them as a set.

Currently, creqs from previous systems (e.g. agenntb) are currently not displayed in the history tab at all; even granted category id changes are treated as having never existed (if a creq changed from category A to category B, the system thinks the original adder added B, rather than A). I'm fairly sure that user-issued dels are being treated as mod-issued, too, with the creqid also missing.

See e.g. for one of many possible cases. The short story is that a tag was deleted whenever in the distant past and I have no idea why or whether a creq was involved. In this case, I managed to figure out what had happened in 2012 (mostly, anyway), but sometimes that's simply impossible, and I would have preferred if I didn't need to waste 15 minutes doing that anyway. Providing that data is a job for an algorithm, not for a human being.

I'd like these ancient creqs listed there, as is the case for tagentityreltb creqs. Preferentially including all the way back from the first system if at all possible. Precisely where human memory isn't too useful, that data can be a veritable gold mine.

I'm not so sure about the current status of the old char/creator tags. It may be that we're not even currently recording their removals; I can't say I recall seeing a char/creator tag removal from the previous system. Ideally I'd like that data from there as well.
