Good point.  In fact, we should likely remove the $Log$ logs since
the fact that they don't reflect the most recent changes is confusing.
I'd be willing to do that if no one objects.  I have a script I used
for GDAL that should be repurposable.

I'm not sure what you mean.  We did discuss including the bug id
at the end of the commit message prefixed with the #.

Now this sounds like busy work!  I don't see any compelling reason
to fiddle with this.
