This ends up looking rather ugly in the history, and I would hate to see VCS 
history bent merely to conform to tools usage.

Rather, the history should be as clean and exact as possible.  If elisp 
functions need to be written to convert ChangeLog entries to a suitable format, 
I can do that.

Also, in magit if you press 'C' on any diff hunk, it auto-generates a properly 
formatted ChangeLog-style comment into the current commit log.
