When we change our Eideticker tests (as I just effectively did by changing the input framework from monkey to orangutan), we'll want the option of being able to generate backdated information for how the new tests performs with older revisions. This should give us a baseline for comparison and make sure that we're not hiding a regression.

(another option would be to run two sets of tests in parallel for a week as we do with talos-- that's probably preferable but I think that's more complicated than this so let's just do this for now)

Note that this just allows generating backdated information alongside existing data, not allowing us to distinguish it from data generated using older tests / automation infrastructure. If data already exists for an older date, you should delete it before generating new data.
