I'm not sure what this means - the Dependent scheduler doesn't edit
the sourcestamp.  It does set the BuildSet reason to "downstream".
There are a *lot* of places in Buildbot that could be informally
described as "comment", but only one is truly called "comment" - that
comes with the patch.  You've also added a comment property, which
begins some confusion.  Don't add more confusion by referring to other
things as comments :)
