If anybody eventually thinks they have a decent way to generate
ChangeLogs then please do add it here so we can have some consistency:

I'm interested to see the result, though I'm frankly resigned to the
entropy increase. I personally have never seen a generated ChangeLog
that was anywhere near as useful as a separate ChangeLog, regardless of
what other tools are available to do commits archeology, so my projects
will not change that practice just because of a VCS change. No, I'm not
interested in discussing it.
