As anticipated, this road is harder, for example, this other reference
is missing from NEWS:

  commit fce3e121f3726aabfe8cfc6e4d98f31c6713c0f4
  Author: Paul Ramsey <pramsey at cleverelephant.ca>

      Fix flags in case where a boxless geom comes in with a "has box" set of flags.
      References #4707

But, mind you: ticket #4707 does not even exist!

I guess in order to be useful, the script should also take a list
of "bad commits" to NOT look at.
