These ideas sound great to me. In case they don't get implemented, or
until they do, would it be hard to cook up a script that does what I
want, even if it involves downloading the packages to see the changelogs?
Can I get apt to print out the .deb's it is going to install?
Something like "apt-get -s dist-upgrade | grep Inst", but with output
suitable for apt-listchanges. This would be enough for me to cook up
something, I think, although it would be a bit awkward.
