I probably have to do to that anyways. Lets say someone does

clview mini

Right now, I am not going to find `mini' in the changelogs entries. What
I need to do is to to expand mini/* and look for any of those files in
the changelogs and filter those parts of the entry out.

BTW, the reason I grep for the file name in the message body is just so
that I can filter out all the extra `unrelated' parts of the commit
message. I agree, using the changed-path is a better way to find out
where the changes for the entire patch are. But once I find out that, I
need to de-verbosify the commit message.
