Allow admins to correlate autoblocks to originating block (currently admin cannot see IF in fact the IP is autoblocked)
Open, MediumPublic

Description

At the moment, it's impossible for an admin to correlate if an autoblock id is in fact affecting a said user/ip. I know there has been privacy problems, but some ways I think could be fixed to help this issue, as for the moment, unblocking an autoblock is a fully blind operation by an admin, the admin cannot see IF in fact the ip is autoblocked, and it's really difficult to lookup the autoblock in question.

Alternative 1 is a way to be possible to check IF an ip is autoblocked by a particular autoblockid ( auto_id(ip) == id );
Alternative 2 could be to make an translation table for autoblock ids where a blocking creates an hidden id; and a public id is visible but is only connected to the autoblocked ip, and not traceable to the original block.

I wonder how this is related to bug 5445 which got fixed after long time.
