On June 22 I sent a patch to the list which implemented a preliminary
version of a similar feature. It doesn't work by checking the whole list
of new files against the whole list of deleted files (which is O(n*m) no
matter which direction the compare happens) but by maintaining an index
of files on the destination so they can be found even after a rename).

I received no feedback from that message...
