If we do that, it should have all the old ChangeLogs, including 
ChangeLog.old-ports* and nptl/ChangeLog.old and nptl_db/ChangeLog.old 
(appropriately named).  (I also think that unless and until we can stop 
using ChangeLogs, we should also move to using just the toplevel ChangeLog 
for all changes, including libidn and localedata, which would mean moving 
their existing files as well, but that's a separate issue.)
