I've improved the wording.

I added this only because we mentioned cleanups to README with the
1.0.0 release notes. I'm fine with no longer doing so -- wiped!

If you're using the C++ code directly, it matters. However, I assume
such usage to be an edge case. If we care to mention only the "end
point" of the bindings implementation (the APIs commonly used by
bindings programmers), this could be collapsed to "improved JavaDoc"
or some such.

We mention fixes for compilation errors elsewhere in CHANGES, too. I
left this one in.

Yeah, had my revnums mixed up on a couple lines, corrected.

Thanks for the review, guys.
