Actually this is not a problem as long as he uses BK -- it has some good
tools for dealing with deducing renames from patches. :-)

For the longer term where linus uses arch too, defining a
patch-file-superset that more accurately captures changesets, and
writing a command to export/import them, is not very hard (and even
without that, doing `detection' similar to BK isn't hard either -- both
I and other people have done it already in various scripts).

I'm beginning to think that life is just one long Yoko Ono album; no rhyme
or reason, just a lot of incoherent shrieks and then it's over.  --Ian Wolff
