With the compiler we use it also, it's very easy because you can search for 
$Log and check what was changed in that file without opening to a different 
Changelog file.

But there is also a small util in the compiler/utils/ subdir called 
fixlog.pp that can remove all old logs after X revisions or logs older than 
date Y. This will reduce the amount of logs
