I had the impression that patches sent to this list don't usually
contain a changelog entry (which I don't have much respect for, but I
guess I'll have to cope...). OTOH, posting a ready-made Mercurial
commit might give the impression of it being in its final state, and
ideally it would be, were it not for the pain of merging changelogs.

Indeed, the intention was to copy the changelog snippet from the
commit text to the ChangeLog file before the final push. So what
exactly would you suggest? Did I not spell out clearly where the
changes originate? I applied Robert's changes and adapted as needed.
