I have to correct myself on this one. It looks like recent versions of
git(-log) and gitk follow the history even before renames, but the
fact that the file was renamed is not visible to the user. gitk and
git log -p just display the new filename in the diffs for revisions
before the renaming. Besides the commit message there is no indication
that the file was renamed.
