To group changesets together is indeed a nice feature, but I assumed it 
would had been possible to split each session into its constituent 
changesets. Given that this is not possible at all, is there any 
information that could be exploited reliably to find the relevant 

At first I thought about reading the user and time and ask the API to 
give me back all the changesets around that time frame, but that is 
highly unreliable. Any other idea?
