I'm largely ambivalent to this whole thing - I find ChangeLogs useful,  
but they also annoy me greatly when they conflict.

So to play devils advocate to your suggestion, if we shifted from the  
many ChangeLogs we have now to a single ChangeLog, we'd be  
*increasing* the chance that your check-in will run in to a ChangeLog
