I prefer the old format.

Well, git log is not actually affected by the ChangeLog format, but by
the commit message. I mean, we generate the commit message from the
ChangeLog, so we can keep the old format in the ChangeLog and update the
script to generate the commit message to make it better for oneline git
log format. webkitpy parses the ChangeLog not the commit message, so
everything should work.
