      Richard wants the ChangeLog to be massaged in a way
    similar to what was done for multi-tty, and when this came up, everybody
    ran away screeming (there's about 280KB of ChangeLog entries on the
    unicode branch).

It is important to have these change log entries in clean form.

The most important part of the massaging is to get rid of duplicate
entries.  For instance suppose a function named foo is added and then
changed 10 times.  There will be 11 change log entries for it, but we
we only need to keep one: "New function".

Even when a function is not new, sometimes you can simplify its change
log data a lot by combining entries.

I don't insist on combining entries when it isn't a simplification.
