Oops, I thought this code was part of Alex's update detailed in the
ChangeLog because I didn't remember doing it.  I'll have to figure out what
I was doing and write an entry for it.

This is true for the CVS '.tar.gz' versions, since they are an image of
what is currently contributed to the tree.  I frequently don't commit the
ChangeLog file until well after the changes themselves, so it'll be old in
many cases.

The '-bplXX.patch.gz' files contain the differences between my repository
and the last release, so they may include changes I'll never commit and may
exclude other developers' work that I have not yet pulled into my tree.
