If nobody merges the plain-old "ChangeLog" files from the current XFT
branch into what I'm doing, and my branch is used in lieu of the
current XFT branch everything people have done in those files (in some
cases this amounts substantial work) will be lost.  If nobody cares, I
can start new files and drop the old ones on the floor.

Are you telling me that edits made to ChangeLog, NEWS, etc., in the
XFT branch are expendable?
