I've written update-webkit-diff3.  It creates a patch using "diff -u" between
the local changed file and the previous file, then applies this patch using
"patch --fuzz=3" to prevent unwanted conflicts in ChangeLog files (just like
svn-apply now does).

I didn't realize that prepare-ChangeLog could use the script as well.  I'll
make this change and submit a patch.
