Ideally, when displaying edits - e.g. for "recent changes" - any consecutive
edits by the same person should be collapsed into one edit - that way if a troll
makes 5 consecutive edits, the first three being garbage, the fourth a
reasonable if minor edit, and the fifth a troll, then ALL FIVE edits are shown
as one - making it easier to see and revert.
