I use M-x log-edit-insert-changelog to auto-populate the vc-log buffer
from my ChangeLog entries. Is this doing the right thing, or does Emacs
need to be changed?

It creates log entries like this:

  * cedet/ede/cpp-root.el (ede-cpp-root-project): Foo

  * srecode/doc-cpp.srt, srecode/doc-default.srt: Bar
  * ede.texi (ede-target):
  * org.texi (Refiling notes): Qux

The paths are relative to where each ChangeLog file is, rather than
relative to the root of the project. If there are two files with the
same basename in different subdirectories, things might get ambiguous.
