Is noindex better than a canonical link to the changeset here?

In 8226:

Trac: Add a noindex, follow robots header to file revisions and file-based changeset views.

Fixes #4168, #4169.

Yeah, canonical wouldn't work here; it's not an equivalent page, and wouldn't necessarily keep it out of the index.
