I was assuming that we would retain the Changelog item format keying on
files and functions.

In that case, extracting items pertaining to foo.c from log output
would be no more difficult than extracting them from a separate
Changelog.  Less so, actually -- the pre-filtering for commits
touching foo.c would throw out a lot of chaff.
