I've started testing the detect-renamed patch with 2.6.9 and soon 3.0.0pre1.  I have an unique situation where I'm rsync'ing to a HSM based filesystem.  I've found that the detect-renamed patch works but it appears to do a copy of the file to the new destination.  This is particular slow since the file in the HSM based filesystem may only be a stub and all the data is only resident on tape.  The copy waits for the datq to be recalled from tape which depending on the file size can take a long time.  I've looked through the patch code and am wondering if there is an easy way to have rsync do a move from the ~.tmp. directory.
