It really doesn't, though.  He wants to see the changelogs before
*downloading* the packages, which is entirely reasonable.
apt-listchanges only does its thing after the packages have been
downloaded.

Unfortunately, that's pretty much the only way to go.  Personally I
can't believe there's still no way to view package changelogs on the
web.
