you guys can play with the cvs logs as much as you want.  having filled
out a cvs log and a hand edited ChangeLog -- i would really rather use
(and read) the hand edited one.

just something to run it the directory, grab the first 10 entries and
spit it into some html.  the only cvs log i would need is for

i am worried that if you make it too hard of a job, you will scare away
anyone that might like to help.
