I'm not sure, but I think what we'd have to do is to write what roundup
calls an auditor (which is a like a detector, only it acts as a prehook
rather than a posthook).

We actually also could use something like this for the resolved-in
setting, because our roundup-darcs integration script will say something
like "This issue has been resolved in Darcs 2.8 HEAD" without noticing
that somebody had already marked it resolved-in Darcs 2.5 CURRENT
first.  So there needs to be an auditor that says "if the actor is a bot
and the current resolved-in is earlier than than the proposed one, don't
change the resolved-in field".
