We should store rudimentary history (or at least this one data point) in commentmeta as well.

Patch looks good to me.

I haven't looked at how they're doing it yet, but Akismet is now storing comment history, so maybe we should make it compatible with how they're structuring the data.

This would probably be better left to a plugin. If core wants to store who approved a comment, I would suggest also including a new db column in the column table to store when it was approved, or last modified, or both. Seems those would go hand in hand.

FWIW, it looks like Akismet is storing their history as an array of data in comment meta:

if ( is_object( $current_user ) && isset( $current_user->user_login ) )
        $user = $current_user->user_login;

$event = array(
        'time'    => self::_get_microtime(),
        'message' => $message,
        'event'   => $event,
        'user'    => $user,

// $unique = false so as to allow multiple values per comment
$r = add_comment_meta( $comment_id, 'akismet_history', $event, false );

where the value of $event passed to the array is any number of things, including 'check-spam|ham|error', 'wp-blacklisted', "status-changed-$approved", 'report-spam|ham', 'cron-retry', etc.

This could be done in a plugin like Akismet (which is doing it), I don't see us jumping to add the functionality to core right now
