AFAIR, Bazaar's changelog merge plugin would simply put all the merged
ChangeLog entries from the other branch on top, so all you needed to
do was manually update the dates of the top entries.  Git's driver
tries to be more sophisticated, so some entries which come from the
other branch are inserted in-between the existing entries.  Which
makes the merged entries harder to find.
