   The web interface for the history is also usable without prerequisite
   knowledge; but it is not searchable.

It is also not accessible to people without access to the big bad
internet; or funky GUI tools.

   Please place yourself at the position of the user who builds and
   runs a program, not the developer. If all packages have different
   ways of configuring the package, of showing version history, of
   listing the dependencies, etc.  building packages for one's own use
   is too much of a frustrating experience.  This is why a unified
   'configure' invocation scheme was needed; this is also why a
   unified view of the version history is needed.
