It's not hard to track renames within a single branch given the information
in the patch-logs (and patch-logs are easily available, both in the archive,
and in a project tree).  Indeed my script doesn't do it yet, but I've looked
at it, and it doesn't seem to be much work.

Of course one question is, should a `file history' show history from merges?
Tracking renames within merges might be less fun...

I do think this is important though -- one of main reasons I use viewcvs-type
cvs browsers is to find out how a certain file has changed recently, and it's
a big pain to have to look in every changeset to see.


Come now, if we were really planning to harm you, would we be waiting here, 
 beside the path, in the very darkest part of the forest?
