pcl-cvs: indentation from ChangeLog entries should not be tampered with

  In log-edit.el, (log-edit-insert-changelog) calls
  (log-edit-delete-common-indentation). I would argue that this call
  be deleted.

  The indentation is there in the ChangeLog for a good reason--to make
  it easy to see the date separators. Similarly, in the output of `cvs
  log', the indentation makes the log entries easier to separate. If
  you do this, consider setting fill-prefix to "\t" if necessary.

  Instead, make (log-edit-delete-common-indentation) an *optional*
  hook to log-edit-hook so that the user can use customize to easily
  squish the indentation if she desires.

  p.s. Just got turned on to pcl-cvs. Very cool. Thanks. Was I
  impressed when I saved a buffer and the status on the file in the
  *cvs* buffer changed to Modified without having to rescan the
  directory. Nice package.
