I'm always worried about making it harder to get the history related to
the running code... (I guess there's still always cvs history, but...)

I'd like to see all changelog entries remain that are related to patches
still carried in the src.rpm - and not thrown away just because that
patch was added > 1 year ago.  Much harder to automate, though... If
there's a policy that says I can trim my own changelogs with that
criteria, I'll gladly do it.  (Maybe the automated trimmer could only
nuke old changelog entries if the changelog is above a certain size
threshold?)
