I think it's wrong to fix ChangeLog files in such way.  I understand
fixing spacing or obvious typos, but rewriting history of the project to
use "official" names of software - it just smells like 1984.  What if
GNOME is renamed to EMONG tomorrow?  Would we rewrite the project
history again?

This is just ridiculous.  The text doesn't become more clear, but
formatting becomes sloppy.  I don't want such changes to be applied to
the entries that bear my name.
