Alright.  Want to start looking at this again.  Needed to get out of the
troll war that I accidentally got involved in on -users. *Slaps head and
vows not to do that again.

Anyway, I looked some more at concatenating callsign/chanid for these
special cases and I think it would lead to a lot of exception logic,
seemingly in more places than just FromRecorded.

If I rule that out temporarily for now, option 2 would still be to try to
figure out how to get all of the oldrecorded entries in.  I still think
that's possible, but if I temporarily rule this out, and call option 3 your
"changing PruneRedundants to group  by chanid instead of callsign", can you
describe what you believe the fallout would be?
