ChangeLog.pre-2-0, actually.

This actually should be done on the cvs server. (History is not that
important for the ChangeLog, but the general policy is that all moves
should be done as a 'cp' on the server, followed by a 'cvs rm' on
the original file.)

Tim has asked that the gobject/ChangeLog be kept separate.
May be a bit confusing if we merge the rest, but he has final call

I'd like to see these gotten rid of as separate changelogs ... it's
quite frequent to update docs and code in a single commit and having
two ChangeLogs is a pain.

Keeping this one separate is probably good considering that it is in
no sense maintained by the GTK+ team.

These should be left alone, I think.

I think direct login access to the CVS machine is required here. I can
move do the copies when I get back to working on general stuff (early
next weak.)
