[git-buildpackage] gbp-dch commit message order

As I am not really working with tags, I rebuild the changelog for every
new package release from scratch. The version I set is
major-minor-YYYYMMDDHHMMSS e.g. 0.2-20211228124024
Now as I see, the git log messages are added to the changelog in time
order, so at the and, the oldest message is on the top.
If I understand right, this could be avoided by setting tags for each
new version and then only update the changelog. But even inside the
updates, I'd say, that the reverse updated order would be more useful?
To get the behaviour intended (at least for me) I have commented out
commits.reverse() in the dch.py script. Would it make sense to have this
at least optional with a switch?
