It's actually fairly weird that one has to maintain dependencies by hand,
I don't think I know any single project still alive that needs that. And
duplicating that dependency information in ChangeLog entries will make
a painful thing twice as painful. Not that the question "who added this
dependency" seems like a common question to ask.
