I checked lintian in it's most naggy mode recently when preparing the
backport for Squeeze and it complained about a missing changelog.
Since then, this has been on my todo.

I guess this poke is a good an excuse as any to actually do this :)

My plan would be to create a changelog and simply copy over everything
into the Debian one; if you have any other ideas, now it's time to
pipe up.
