I have thought about that before. However, I meant to implement it this
way: Parse debian/changelog locally, and use new entries as default for
Subversion's changelog. It would prevent debian/changelog to be
cluttered with entries such as "forgot to add file foo last time; really
add it now". (Yes, you could also clean debian/changelog up before
