Git does not have a concept of moving files.  It uses heuristics to 
reconstruct that information from similarities between files.  Buggy 
approach IMO (putting "log --follow" at the mercy of that heuristics' 
accuracy), though I know that Linus claims its a feature not a bug. 
(And correct me if I'm wrong, you lovers of git out there.)
