Per discussion on IRC:

Showing edits to [[Thread:Feedback/Stopping bad signatures?/Mike.lifeguard
(4)]] when the user "really" (from their point of view) edited
[[Talk:Feedback]] is quite confusing. Lines in contribution lists and the like
should be forged to look like section edits on the page where discussion was
taking place:

# (show/hide) 03:27, 5 November 2009 (hist | diff) N Thread:Feedback/Stopping
bad signatures?/Mike.lifeguard (4) ‎ (Reply to Stopping bad signatures and
other untraceable vandalism) (top) [rollback]

becomes something like

# (show/hide) 20:53, 2 March 2010 (hist | diff) m Talk:Feedback  (→Stopping bad
signatures? Reply to Stopping bad signatures and other untraceable vandalism)
(top) [rollback]

This is possibly a better approach than what's been done for RecentChanges, but
is essentially the same idea. All forged lines should look the same though -
one format for RC and another for contribution lists wouldn't be good. In an
ideal world, even LQT history pages would use the same format as well, rather
than the (eww!) table. This would provide a continuity of experience that's
currently lacking, in addition to hiding ugly implementation details which are
currently confusing.
