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.)
