Does the "Conversion Script" have artificial intelligence?

I was browsing the "older versions" of Tragedy of the commons, when I discovered that a "Conversion script" inserted the following sentence into the article at 18:51 Feb 25, 2002:

Another commonly proposed solution is to convert the commons into private property, giving its owner an incentive to enforce its sustainability.

Is there some mundane explanation for this, or does the conversion script perhaps have AI of some kind? =)

The "conversion script" entries are the munged versions of the last edit of the article on the old UseMod wiki. Any earlier entries were from _before_ that version and were imported by another script months later; so a diff from the last pre-conversion revision to the conversion will show both actual conversion changes (subpage links etc) and the last human revision if any. --Brion 03:07 Nov 25, 2002 (UTC)

Does this mean that the credit to whoever did the last human revision has been dropped? Is it possible to put it back in? It seems a shame to lose the information on who made the last change. -- Oliver Pereira 20:33 Nov 26, 2002 (UTC)

Yes, it could be done, but it's way's down on my list at the moment. If somebody else wants to give a try at munging the script, drop me a line. --Brion 21:03 Nov 26, 2002 (UTC)
