I think it's basically a good idea.  One thing to be considered is what
to do if you want to echo anything related to the PR, not only
Audit-Trail changes, somewhere, see also PR gnats/143.

BTW, I'm not going to introduce any new functionality until 4.0 is
released (unless it's so important that its absence can be considered a
serious bug), so any change requests should be filed as such into the
bug tracking systems, otherwise they can be forgotten.

real programmer?  don't get me started.  if you need to hide your
pathetic excuse for a carreer behind super-macho languages like C, C++,
and/or Perl instead of writing clean, maintainable, efficient code, you
aren't much of a real programmer in my view.  -- Erik Naggum in comp.emacs
