I have been thinking about using a calendar file for both TODO and changelog. 
It would be nice with extended TODO items (like a dependency field and a 
related bugs field). The Changelog could be the calendar journal part, moving 
copying from TODOs when marked as finished could be automated.

This does not directly involve having cvs logs in the changelog though, which 
is also a nice idea :)
