It also seems time (again, as Kim said earlier) for a fresh
lisp/ChangeLog and a new lisp/ChangeLog.12. The right thing to do here
is create ChangeLog.12 as a new file with no arch tag, and move most
of the current contents of ChangeLog there, right? That way, when you
sync things from lisp/ChangeLog on the release branch, they will go
into lisp/ChangeLog rather than ChangeLog.12.

What do people think the best split date is? The base of the release
branch, or perhaps 2006-12-31, to match ChangeLog.11?

BTW I'm not saying any of this needs to be done in a rush.
