Get cleanupTitles.php into a good enough state that we could run it in production
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

From T195546#4237521:

I think the results are unacceptably bad in some cases, and we should not run the script before it is improved:

frwiki:  DRY RUN: would rename 1547147 (3,'195.175.037.8') to (3,'Broken/195.175.37.8')

Should rename to (0,'Broken/User:195.175.37.8') (or something), in main namespace, so that we can easily produce a list of affected pages (i.e. Special:PrefixIndex/Broken/).

test2wiki:  DRY RUN: would rename 2987 (447,'Columbia_University') to (0,'Columbia_University')

Should rename to (0,'Broken/NS447:Columbia_University') (or something), so that someone can find out the original namespace (in this case, EducationProgram).

bnwikisource:  DRY RUN: would rename 1251 (0,'WS:COPY') to (0,'Broken/COPY')

Where did the WS: prefix go?

avwiki:  DRY RUN: would rename 7541 (1,'Википедия:Requests_for_adminship') to (1,'Broken/\xd0\x92\xd0\xb8\xd0\xba\xd0\xb8\xd0\xbf\xd0\xb5\xd0\xb4\xd0\xb8\xd1\x8f\x3aRequests_for_adminship')

It's not acceptable to mangle perfectly normal characters (but not ASCII) like this.


Also, I think the prefix Broken/ is also unhelpful (and not translateable). The script should take an option to specify a prefix, so that we can e.g. set it to T195546/ or maybe 2018-06-29/ or some other vaguely useful thing that can be used to find out where that page suddenly appeared from.
