[MonoDevelop] PATCH: ChangeLogAddin simplification

Some month ago I simplified a little bit the ChangeLogAddin but the
patch got lost in Lluis work on version control (I think). This is
almost the same patch, updated to work with SVN head. Original
explanation of what I did:

When using emacs I find myself writing much more detailed ChangeLogs
than when using MD, because MD's ChangeLog add-in is a little bit picky
about when you can insert an entry or header. I have a patch that
changes the default behaviour in the following ways:

1/ Just one command "Insert ChageLog Entry", an header is automatically
added if missing or if the top-most header is different from the one
we're about to add.

2/ The command can be issued from anywhere and the add-in looks for the
right ChangeLog file and even creates one if necessary. It looks for
ChangeLog in the current project, then in its parent combine and so on,
up to the top-most combine. If no ChangeLog is found, one is created in
the current project directory. So if you like a single top-level
ChangeLog just create an empty one in the combine before adding the
first entry, else let the plugin create one in the project for you.

Hope this helps, patch attached.
