Not to sidetrack the conversation too much -- but this is a perfect
example of why I suggested more informative changelog entries would be
valuable to the project going forward.  If you record this sort of
information along with changes to a file, then someone wondering why
code is written in a certain way at least has a hope of using "svn
blame" or the like and actually finding an answer.
