Exactly.  And making it auto-follow with a low threshold would be a
great default.  We'll have to deal with D/F conflicts that Junio was
talking about in (2), every once in a while.  We'll have a lot more
incentive to build the D/F conflict resolution process a nice UI.

git-core will actually start working with trees the way it works with blobs.

Is this not similar to the previous attempts at bulk rename detection? Such as $gmane/160233.

A practical bulk rename detection would be good. It doesn't have to be perfect.
