IIRC, it was as a marker, I only wanted one of them, and didn't feel
like debugging logic to find the project root by other means.

The point in mentioning it here is that there are trivial hacks that
don't require any changes to add-change-log-entry.

As above, it was important (maybe only to my paranoia) that ChangeLog
be present in the directory but not be a readable file.

Caution.  Who knows what else git might be using it for?  Or maybe I
just didn't know that was the name of the editmsg file at that time --
it was a long time ago.
