I agree, and would be happy to follow the gcc lead here.  I'm sure
there will be things that might be annoying on some occasions.  For
example, the gcc commit hook insistence that all files changed be
mentioned in the changelog (or there be no changelog entry).  But that
sort of checking is often a good thing, and I'm willing to put up with
the times it is annoying.
