Right, while code comments are transactional unfortunately "discussion"
comments are currently not. I'm not sure there are currently plans to
change this.

Another issue is that apparently GitLab still sends one email per
comment instead of one comment per batch. This will evidently be fixed
in GitLab 11.6 [1].
