Why bother whether the changeset was created by a bot or not. Simply 
offer the user the choice not to display big changesets (say those 
covering more than 5 degrees in either latitude or longitude). That 
should get rid of most bot edits and other edits unlikely to touch your 
area of interest.

It could be implemented with a checkbox on the history page. Such a 
solution shouldn't need much extra CPU power.
