We can't really drop the existing ChangeLog file since it contains
much much more data than the historical commit messages. We need to
really auto-generate only new changelog entries, Preferably only
generating 'ChangeLog' when doing a 'make dist'. Could probably just
do a rename of existing file to ChangeLog.old, and then just generate
a new ChangeLog file from the switch over date.
