* Much more detailed and inherently correct information can be gotten from 

  git log -- libguile/

  git log -- test-suite/


* The ChangeLog duplicates the git log information if done correctly.  Hence 
it requires double work for the committer.

* Since updates to the ChangeLog always happen at the top, they virtually
always conflict on pulls and cherry-picks.  This makes it impossible to
use the power of git.  For example, rebase is the standard git approach 
to creating linear history of changes.  This is apparently something 
the GUILE devs think is important, but the changes to ChangeLog ensure
that every cherry pick will need manual conflict resolution.
