Aw, foo.  When you use a Dependent scheduler, the patch comment
gets replaced by "downstream", so it sounds like I'm going to have
to use  --properties=comment= (as well as --comment) if I want
the comment to remain visible in downstream builds.

I bet this sort of solves my other problem: although the
patch comment might not be persisted properly, I'll bet
the build properties are, and I can just resurrect the
comment from there.   Not exactly a patch I would write
home to my mother about, but it ought to let me show the
patch comment in the transposed grid, which will make my
users happier.
