Rather arbitrarily, just feels more or less safe:  cut everything from 
before oldstable release.  Based on the assumption that oldstable -> stable 
updates occur more or less over the whole stable+1 development circle.

So currently, I'd cut everything that pre-dates woody release - probably 
nobody will do a potato -> woody upgrade.  But woody is still quite a bit 
in use, and so those people could track the changelog without looking at 
multiple versions even if they do partial upgrades and their system spans 
woody to sid.  (Obviously some person will have a system spanning potato to 
sid and miss the most relevant entry.  So never cutting changelogs is 
another very obvious possibility....)
