Unfortunately I think making that change would have broken
`change-log-goto-source', so I run an extra `find-file' after
`change-log-goto-source'.  Take a look and see if it works for you.  It
may be more appropriate with find-file-other-window to keep the
ChangeLog visible.

I had that originally, but it's very common to have multi-file commits
and visiting each file proved (to me) to be useful.  Remember, this is
to visit the file referenced in the ChangeLog, not the ChangeLog entry

We can have the behavior customizable if you like to visit just entries.
