Is it possible to place this kind of information to the inside of
binary package? How about obtaining all this info like this.

   ~# pkg_info -Q OVERRIDES /path/to/python-9.9.9.tgz
   lang/python24 lang/python23 lang/python22 lang/python20

IMHO CHANGES file is not a best place to store renamings in it.
