Oh, yes, absolutely agreed.  Sorry for not making that clear.  Putting the
changelog in the package metadata makes a ton of sense.  In fact, if we
could also do that with the copyright file, that would eliminate nearly
all of our issues with linked doc directories and would simplify a whole
currently-contentious area of Policy, replacing it with a much simpler
debate about the right interface to view those files for installed
