Hi Jeff,

thank you very much for your idea! It's good and simple. It just breaks down 
for the case when a large folder got renamed.

But I already hacked the basic layout of the algorithm and it's not 
complicated at all, I believe:

I had to interrupt work on this and could not yet finish and test it. But I 
thought you might be interested. Maybe something like this might one day be 
rewritten in C and become part of git core?
