IIUC, the idea is to fill in `ChangeLog' files as usual and then let
this program extract entries from there and put them in the Git log,
right?  That seems useful, but it means you can't use your favorite
front-end to commit.

I'd say "yes", but OTOH, I haven't found anything like Emacs'
`add-change-log-entry' that would fit nicely into my workflow (I did
look at DVC but it looks unmaintained and undocumented ATM).  IOW,
laziness has won so far.  :-)
