It works for me.  There is a small problem: 

Suppose you have a ChangeLog file with one entry for lisp/foo.el and
an entry for texi/foo.texi.  Then you commit.  The commit message
with say lisp/foo.el and texi/foo.texi which clearly identifies the

Now consider another situation where you write an entry in
lisp/ChangeLog for lisp/foo.el and an entry in texi/ChangeLog for
texi/foo.texi, then commit.  Then the commit message will say foo.el
and foo.texi instead of lisp/foo.el and texi/foo.texi.

doesn't bother me at all.
