I don't think it's mandatory that we save the information, but it
certainly would be nice. I'd like apt-listchanges to show me the binary
NMU changelog. I've used that information before on the local system, and
that's a lot more convenient than going to the web and trying to do
archeology on what happened.
Saving the binary NMU changelog in a separate file feels like the right
solution to me.
