The detail I'm looking for is to make the mapping from the author
initials to the authors full name. I don't mind to look at the
textual information in the preamble, but it is hard to find which one
contains the method and the version in question.
I managed to fill most of the '?' marks on:
but not the 3.9 era contributors. How would you find who 'tp' was,
'ASF', 'edt', 'EP', 'EW', 'm', 'NDCC', 'sk', 'YE'?

I'd probably build the extention of tool that I have now; instead of
filing in, it just creates the ChangeRecord like object and store in
my dictionary. I don't necessarily like to see the current code
changing^^; In this way, I can view the long history of methods from
1.13 to the latest in a browser-like tool.
