No, we don't have such a system, unfortunately.  It's somewhat
subjective what counts -- we try to count "lines of code", so whitespace
changes don't count, of course, and other trivial transforms don't count

So as you say -- you just have to look at the commit history and make a
judgement call in these cases.  (Or even better, ask for a copyright
assignment form and then you don't have to count. 😀)
