FWIW, I don't.  I've used ChangeLogs and Journals while I was still
using RCS and I'm glad I don't have to anymore.  With properly written
commit messages, I get more easily accessible and much more accurate
information than by just looking at a ChangeLog or trying to align
ChangeLog entries with a diff.

If the information in the commit message and the ChangeLog is different
to begin with, then you're doing something wrong.  If it is (supposed to
be) identical, then manually entering the same information in two
different places is unnecessarily complex and error-prone, so generating
one format from the other is the only sane option.
