+1 on converting all revision references throughout the CHANGES file to
the ASF revision numbers, now, in trunk. (+0 on also doing it on the
1.6.x and 1.5.x branches; fine if our branch maintenance practice makes
that happen automatically.)
Rationale: what C-Mike said. And anyone cross-referencing against old
revnums recorded in log msgs and in the issue tracker is probably
already doing this conversion so I don't think it has a negative impact
there. And preserving both numbers such as "(r5000=r845074)" would be
ugly and unnecessary.
