Let's not forget that we don't always have access to a VCS.  Moreover,
sometimes you are looking for information that is not easily gleaned
from Git history.  One example is establishing whether some change was
in Emacs XX.YY or in a later version.  Given our messy DAG and Git's
general indifference to branch-specific history, I find the
ChangeLog's in the tarball a better tool for this job.
