Oy!  Someone should tell Elliot that the ChangeLog is a _good_ thing.
:)  It allows you to look at the status and changes in a bunch of files
in one place and it means that the log of changes is not directly
associated with the management system that you are using.  Not everyone
uses CVS.  I prefer to use it but others may not.  Elliot was on the
emacs team.  It's "C-x 4 a",'s easy. :)

I have the specs for 2.2 at home which I started to read but got
distracted.  I've also been reading about OLE2 and COM for some of the
stuff that Miguel is getting into.  I'll see what I can do with what
time I have.
