Attached is a CHANGELOG file I propose we add to CVS that can be maintained
to document changes from the CVS commits.  Should make posting
feature/change list for future releases easier.  I'd propose also that a
link to this in CVS be added to the website in the Links section so that it
can be used as a reference for people not running CVS to both see what is
coming in the next version and make an informed decision on whether to
upgrade to CVS if they are considering it
