It should be possible to still maintain this distinction, something like:

"Version bump.  Added feature foo.
- --
Feature foo required a complete rewrite of src_install."

And then the ChangeLog generation can happen separately.  The problem
with this method is that if we later rely only on commit logs, users may
see things developers hadn't intended them to see.  So the question is,
will we always generate changelogs from the version control system, or
will we one day expect the user to directly read the commit logs?
