I though about that too, but how exactly you deal with multi-file
commits?  The current ChangeLog file, akward as it is, solves this
problem: when you M-x vc-next-action from the *vc-dir*, only the entries
pertaining to the marked files are fetched into the log buffer by

A single ChangeLog for all my C-x 4 a needs?  Doesn't sound bad, too.
All that would be needed, I think, is to make log-edit-insert-changelog
fix the paths and refill the "paragraphs" when collecting entries.

It leaves me with the multiple-commit-per-day-per-file problem.  I think
the entries copied to the vc-log buffer by `log-edit-insert-changelog'
could be deleted from that file when you C-c C-c (log-edit-done).
