On the other hand, I wish to complain about the release process.  Right
now we have to write the changes in about four different formats:

    makedoc format for changes._tx download release notes (cut and paste from generated CHANGES)
    BB code for announcement
    HTML for web site (requires quite a bit of rewriting)

Not that there is much that can be done about it, but... ugh.
