Here we have the first implementation. I've removed some dust from an hacked 
down gitlog-to-changelog script.

The script uses both git shortlog and .mailmap to extract names, hence the 
different patches.

Since it is based over an old version of gitlog-to-changelog there should be 
some license related fixups. All advices and suggestions are welcome.

Go/NoGo as usual for pushing the changes.

Good night,

Just because the message may never be received does not mean it is
not worth sending.
