A few years ago I wrote scripts that used the XMLRPC interface to jira
to import and line up all the data from our Trac instance into Jira.
Their default "import CSV" way of doing it was basically garbage.  I
still have those scripts.  I took great care to line up the ticket
numbers, comments *and* all timestamps and users, etc.  It was no
small feat.

Basically, the RPC created the tickets and comments; one file was
created to SQL update the date/timestamps of the database, and a
"jelly" file was created to fix the ticket status.  After all were
applied, you reindex jira and poof. Everything is right like it was

If you want to try again using those scripts as a basis, LMK.
