It's not obviously better.

a file was renamed or not.  With bzr, renaming while also modifying
the file's contents can be safely done in one commit instead of two.

If you have constructive criticism and proposals, please post them to
address@hidden  This forum is not the appropriate place
to discuss that, unless the issue is closely related to Emacs.
