    I was assuming that we would retain the Changelog item format keying on
    files and functions.

    In that case, extracting items pertaining to foo.c from log output
    would be no more difficult than extracting them from a separate
    Changelog.  Less so, actually -- the pre-filtering for commits
    touching foo.c would throw out a lot of chaff.

Yes, it could be used in that mode too, if you want to.

An additional nice feature would be the ability to type C-c C-d and
have it show you the change set corresponding to that point in
ChangeLog.  (It could do that by matching dates and approximate
matching against the log entry.)
