do you remember any specific cases where gits copy detection was seriously
wrong, iam interrested to see such failures ...
also keep in mind git was buggy until 3 days ago with blame/annotate and
also i think that all copy missdetections could be fixed simply by seperating
copy from modify, that is check in a true copy first and then check in
modifications. that way git could detected the ancestor file by simple
file compare, and that wont be wrong
