Please also make a point of following the conventions of ChangeLog
entries.  You (Stefan) are one of the "worst offenders" in that
department: your entries look very frequently backwards: first the
file and function, then an empty line, then the detailed explanation
of the change.  It should be the other way around (if you care about
the quality of the logs).
