My files have all been renamed, so to diff one of them to an earlier commit 
I'm saying this sort of thing:

    git diff HEAD:newname cb3e0a5fa8:oldname

I have to keep a list of the new names and old names beside me at all 
times. This seems nuts. Is there a better way? Clearly git can tell from 
the history when a file has been renamed, so why do I have to tell it the 
old name of each file? Thx.
