If you set git diff's "renames" option, (i.e., globally):

    git config --global diff.renames true

then "git diff", format-patch, etc. output is much more readable,
i.e., it excludes the "remove-entire-file" then "add-same-contents"
diff output.  Instead it just prints something like this:

    diff --git a/old b/new
    similarity index 100%
    rename from old
    rename to new
