I never said it was natural, Iʼm just used to it. If there was a way
to do hunk-by-hunk commit message accumulation from magit's diffs,
then I think Iʼd prefer that, since it would allow me to skip the
'visit the file/hunk from the diff, C-x 4 a' portion of generating a
commit message, and would allow me to avoid vc-dir completely. Or a
magit command I could point at just my staged files to generate the
ChangeLog entries. (isnʼt this vc-chlog? Iʼve not tried it yet)
