It's a work in progress... :-) Actually it would probably be the best
if the change time could also be parsed out along with the change text,
which would save having to go over the entire changelog file twice ?

Currently it would return a bogus "date" line, like "  DHCP timeout",
and then fail to parse that into a proper datestring (with strptime)
which would make the date end up as "unknown" (and thus not shown)
