Well, that's a little different, and obviously quite useless.

I try to track all changes in my Changes files because I think of it as 
a list of changes, not only those changes that are significant to those 
considering upgrading. And for the most part, they don't generally make 
it harder to evaluate.

CONTRIBUTORS is okay with me.

Yeah, I wasn't worried about that. I was just pointing out that if it 
was supposed to be a comprehensive list of changes, well, it wasn't. 
But if you guys prefer a different approach, well then never mind. :-)
