Emacs' VC (since 22.2) can also do that (see (info "(emacs) Types of Log

That said, the ideal would be something like `add-change-log-entry' that
operates on Git logs instead of ChangeLogs, but there doesn't seem to be
anything like this.  DVC is said to support things like that, but it
doesn't seem to be well documented.
