It's certainly similar but I wouldn't say a direct duplicate; 2294 is
requesting detection of move/rename *somehow* which is a tricky proposition
(especially with rsync defaulting towards incremental send rather than
processing everything in advance).

I posted this issue with a specific intention of how to extend the existing
--fuzzy parameter (and hopefully clear-ish on what I mean, as I definitely
should have re-read it a couple more times before submitting).

If the new behaviour proposed here were implemented it *could* be considered
enough of a fix to satisfy 2294 as well though, or at least to satisfy it in
cases of incremental sending, as this solution wouldn't require the whole file
tree to be established for comparisons to be made for detecting move/renames.
