Plus it's faster.

One possibility might be to run the equivalent of "git log >ChangeLog"
automatically, as part of every checkin.  I do this (by hand) in my
copies of coreutils etc., simply because 'grep' is so much faster
than 'git log' (much less Emacs's interface to 'git log' -- whew!
what a pig!).

Not volunteering for this task though....
