I will consider this for a future version. Unfortunately, it will involve (in
the case of non-native packages) unpacking the entire source archive, applying
the Debian diff, then reading the changelog out of the tree.
That is, of course, unless I could read the changelog directly out of the diff.
This feels funny to me, though, and I'm not sure whether it's a good idea.
