IMO, it would be simpler to provide key bindings in Changelog mode
that automatically takes you to the previous older / next newer
changelog file in a series of ChangeLog files.

Maybe we could even have PgUp/PgDn doing this automatically at the
top/bottom of the current changelog file.

A similar thing could be done for NEWS files...
