Thanks.  You very well said exactly what I should have said; I
failed to explain where that `reusing rename information from
previous merge` algorithm should fit in the bigger picture.

And the algorithm you describe (and Daniel briefly outlined) is
slightly different from what I had in mind in that it does not
have to depend on previous merge, which is also nice.
