Do we have the necessary infrastructure for ditching ChangeLog files?

Working on a complex feature could take quite some time, perhaps more
than a single Emacs session.  With ChangeLog's, one can keep the log
of changes in a disk file, which is persistent, and then reuse that
log at commit time.  What do we do instead when there are no ChangeLog
files?  Are there any commands that let us edit log messages for
future commits, keep their record, and use them conveniently when the
time comes to commit?
