 Thanks, adamsilverstein, for championing it :)
 > With the latest commit at #23497 [23769], what patch should I apply
 to test things?

 yes, this ticket is really going to help button up the new revisions

 now that the latest patch on #23497 was committed, this patch needs one
 more refresh; i am planning to work on it tonight. in addition to your
 code  - which works perfectly as far as i can tell, thanks - i made the
 requested change so that a current copy of the post is stored as a
 revision, instead of the previous changes being the most recent revision.

 for a while i thought that was all that was required, but I was very
 wrong! both fixes together yield the best results - corrected authors for
 old revision data (and correct authors for new revisions), and revisions
 data that includes the current post data as a revision (once a post is
 updated or a developer calls wp_save_post_revision())

 i should have a refreshed patch for testing for you tonight, or if you
 want you can piece it together:) i also need to update ajax-actions to get
 the new revisions ui to use your function call to get the post author and
 will include that in my patch.
