I didn't say it was just a repeat, I said most of it just repeats.

Why not have this as part of the log entry.  Here's an example (from

	* window.h (struct window): Replace hchild, vchild and buffer slots
	with a single contents slot.  This is possible because each valid
	window may have either the child window (in vertical or horizontal
	combination) or buffer to display (for the leaf window).  Using that,
	a lot of operations to traverse and/or change window hierarchies may
	be simplified.  New member horizontal is used to distinguish between
	horizontal and vertical combinations of internal windows.
