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.
