Folks, this is *really, really, simple*: one file per NEWS entry. How
we arrange them is just a detail. Don't go off trying to invent wild
exotic alternatives that spread state across multiple sources of truth
- significant historical info belongs in the version control system,
and NEWS entries are how we highlight "this one is significant"
(relative to other commits). A hg extension that prepopulates the
commit message from a NEWS entry included in the patch wouldn't be
difficult (especially since some of the Mercurial devs are likely to
join the new core workflow list).
