For client code, I do exactly what you've described. Generate my changelog and verify deltas during the diffs at check-in.
For my personal code, I definitely should, but I generally don't. I've tried it on several occasions. I even have my own SVN server set up "in the cloud", but I never remember to check stuff into it, so having automatic backups is the next best thing. FWIW, my makefile also appends a timestamp to the end of every zip and/or pkg file it generates, so until/unless I manually clean up my builds folder for each project, I also have a copy of every single build I make of a channel.
