Consider this a complaint.  Doing that left a huge gap in our acknowledgement
of contributions, which I was unable to fill because poring over four months
worth of new-httpd per gap is not my idea of fun.  As far as I'm concerned,
committing a developer-visible change to the source without a corresponding
entry in the CHANGES file is justification to revert the change.

If CHANGES gets too big (whatever that means), we can always trim it later.
