Wouldn't a wrapper around "git commit" do it? I mean, a program 'vc-commit',
such that

       vc-commit foo/bar.c bla/blah.c

does the same as

       git commit -m message foo/bar.c bla/blah.c ChangeLog

after having extracted the message from the yet-uncommitted diffs of ChangeLog.

Such a program should be usable by command-line users and by Emacs users,
