Is there going to be a way for people to replace the changelog with
one that contains useful information in that case?  I've been doing
this by doing a make-kpkg configure and then editing the
debian/changelog file afterwards...

BTW, I have a set of patches you might want to consider.  I'll file
them in BTS if you're currently making make-kpkg.
