Sources / changes files:
As far as I'm concerned: not needed anymore. If there is to be a file that contains source code it should have a different format than the changes / sources files have today:
they are very hard to understand when looked at with a text editor
the mechanism used to read / write the files should not be hard coded into the filesystem library
if the files contain special symbols (#method, #preamble, #classComment etc.), give the symbols a place to live and don't expect developers to go and collect symbols from serveral different methods

Finally. That had to get out... :)
