Comment (by adamsilverstein):

 * removed ( 'form-table' == $format ) section from wp_list_post_revisions,
 no longer used
  * updated _wp_upgrade_revisions_of_post() and called after revision save
 via pre_post_update hook
  * added get_the_corrected_modified_author - returns corrected revision
 user name & id as array

  in my initial testing, this patch:
   * corrects autor name and gravatar in revision list and revision
 comparison, on the fly
   * on first post update old data is corrected, further updates leave data
   * author and gravatar dislpay correctly before and after data update

  before patch, create post edit as user admin, user1, user2
  note: user ID and content showing who updated are 'off by one' (shown in
 reverse order, bottom 'blank' content is 1st revision title only made by


  then applied patch, edited post again as user1, note corrected data:
