keeping folders in sync *sparingly*

because rsync has been working for me quite well for quite a while,
I started imagining an optimization.

If I locally rename a *big* file,
next time my "rsync -vaz --delete-after" will copy the file using the  
new name and remove it using its old name.
I don't really mind, if this happens on my LAN,
but I do suffer, if this happens over my mobile phone connection.

I would actually prefer to see the file getting *renamed* remotely.

Can rsync do this?

Is there another tool, that can do the job?
