For example, with the ChangeLog entry: * swank-abcl.lisp (emacs-inspect)typing C-c C-c repeatedly will cause Emacs to cycle through theseveral definitions of the method `emacs-inspect'.  The descriptionfollowing the file name and parenthesized symbol name might containsomething like:   * swank-abcl.lisp (emacs-inspect): [o java:java-object]...other          descriptive text...This avoids using parentheses that confuse Change Log mode, but stillhelp readers quickly locate the definition that has been changed.
