I'm not sure. check_history() has been largely unchanged since its
introduction in r14722, so it seems that we've been doing this for quite
some time.

check_history() is used to determine if any of a group of paths has been
changed in a given revision, and is called in a loop over the paths.
The reason that check_history() doesn't modify changed if the answer is
FALSE is so that previous values of TRUE don't get overwritten. In
effect, this implements a logical OR.

If updating the function, and introducing local variables in the path
loops seems like a more readable solution, feel free to do so.
