There are better ways (IMNSHO) to deal with this issue; I was just thinking
about some way to satisfy the people who say they cannot live without $Log$.

For example, you can add a stanza to your Makefile which does does something
like this:

        svn log -v | gnuify-changelog.pl > Changes

(I do this as part of the 'make dist' target).
