I wouldn't necessarily want to see the per-file change logs when
looking at the change history.  It's for when you want to dive into
the sources and do a more detailed look into a single changeset, or
when looking at the revision history for a particular file.  (i.e.,
when looking at the file revisions history in hg-web).
