I haven't actually used it in a while, but istr there's an issue where
if you change the prototype of a function mklog makes an entry for the
previous function.

Automatically inserting likewise where it would be appropriate would be
nice, but fairly hard I suspect.

Not sure.  I actually haven't used it ina while because I've mostly been
generating patches where it was easier to do one entry for a ton of
files so it was easier to generate that with git diff and sed.
