I'm fine changing it.  The original reason for the "best ability" notes
was that I was more or less making up text to make it compatible with
the changelog style based off of reading your code.  Honestly the
attribution part isn't the most important to me but the "ChangeLog-by is
an interesting idea".  Most importantly, I want to get it in! :)
