I guess I was assuming we were already feeding the query output into a 
separate script already to generate the changelog.

As a practical measure I agree with using the KDE SC version for FIXED-IN 
(which is what I do with JuK, when I work on it), I was more pointing out that 
the query from Bugzilla is already not the primary source for this particular 
data (so much as fat-fingering the FIXED-IN line in the commit will drop it 
from the changelog).
