And it's also painful when you use "gbp dch", having a commit in the
middle introduce a changelog entry means that the next "gbp dch" run
might miss some commits that need to be documented.

Not everybody is sold to the idea of using "gbp dch" but it's definitely
cleaner IMO. Commits that do not modify debian/changelog are also easier
to cherry-pick between different branches, etc.
