not necessarily.  there's two options:
	- just use `git log --stat` and pipe it into a ChangeLog.  this isn't a 
"GNU ChangeLog", but it is a ChangeLog
	- use the abbreviated commit messages that the tools rely on to create a 
GNU ChangeLog format

obviously i'd prefer the first, but i can live with the second.  it's still way 
better than hand maintaining ChangeLog files themselves.
