Creating a ChangeLog right along side the changed file is not
necessarily TRT either.  IOW what we've done in the past was just
a heuristic where the really wasn't many other choices, but if you
consider the "VC root" information that's available nowadays it's
actually a very valid fallback option as well.

>From where I stand "<VCroot>/ChangeLog" is a better fallback option than
"<cwd>/ChangeLog", but in any case either choice is just a "best guess"
and will not always be right (which is why we only make this choice
when there's no pre-existing ChangeLog file).
