[Python-Dev] generated NEWS files

I know that doing merges is rather painful because of the Misc/NEWS
files. Would it be possible to have the NEWS log generated from commit
messages? I was thinking something like this in a message:

Fixed this and that

#1234 X is now known as Y.

It should be fairly simple to write a script to extract and compile
these messages into NEWS before release.
