I have found that also does a really nice job of generating the logs
I need (and I used to like $Log$ when we used rcs), it even tries to generate
the 'GNU-style "ChangeLog" files' Greg is talking about.  When you run it
against the whole of the repository it lets you see more easily how changes
relate to the different files, or if you want the history of just one or a few
files you can specify them on the command line.
take a look at it here:

I'd crawl over an acre of 'Visual This++' and 'Integrated Development
That' to get to gcc, Emacs, and gdb.  Thank you.
