I was under the impression that the responsible for modifying the
CHANGES file was the person who commits the patches. But any way, I
attached a patch to change it below.

Well, I'm changing this stuff using the development branch. I don't
think something like this belongs in a stable branch (it provides no
extra functionality, nor fixes any bugs). So, I don't think forcing
users to change one line in a configuration file when upgrading to a
new stable series is that much of a big deal.

But anyway, a symlink seems like a nice way to provide compatibility,
but also poses the question of how many releases to keep it around.
