 another thing that was initially in there, and is commented out right
now, well, you can see part of it: changelogextract.py.  the reasoning
behind this is to migrate from having the ChangeLog text _in_ the
ChangeLog to having it in a separate suite of files.

 the unfortunate thing about ChangeLog is that a) it's a moving target
b) it's a _rolling_ moving target.  by keeping the entries on a
per-patch-group basis separate, you save time and effort esp. when
maintaining patches for over a year.
