Upon looking at the logs, I actually noticed that the exact commits
Karl didn't want taking up space in the CHANGES file also had the
longest log messages. Which is why I originally included them :)

But I also see his point that a) he's the only one really working on
this stuff, and b) it's not really visible to anyone yet.

Fair enough, and I agree. I was just trying to figure out why I came
up with so much for this release. It's always possible that any
given release can have very few commits but happen to be tremedously
visible/important while another can have a huge number of commits on
invisible/unimportant stuff. Of course, commits with extremely long
and detailed log messages certainly *seem* to be important to the
un-aware :)

I'll gladly attempt to have both where possible. The rev number is
obviously easily attainable, whereas the issue number is not unless
the committer mentions it in the log.

Incidently, the 'new' tradition was a complete accident. I didn't
realize the (#xxxx) was an issue number, and thought it was a rev
number being cross-referenced. It then dawned on me when I saw one
commit which said 'blah blah issue (#xxxx)' :)
