Regardless on how you move things (either git mv, or plain mv), git
format-patch -M should be able to detect renames. At least, that's my
understanding of the thing: git does track renames per se, but
format-patch can detect them when two files are quite similar, and then
encode the change as a rename + a small diff, rather than a full
removal + full addition.
