It sounds like a good idea to me.

I agree with small commits, but am less sure about the ChangeLog. At the
moment ChangeLog seems to be a record of just about everything that's done
to the code, large or small, so I think refactorings ought to get mentioned.
(It seems to mostly duplicate CVS log comments, which makes me wonder if
it shouldn't be autogenerated.) Perhaps we should have a different document
that only describes the changes significant to users -- bugs fixed, new
functionality added, etc ?
