SHA1's and such will certainly help. If you've never used it before (sounds
like you have from your choice of jargon), GIT is pretty damn incredible at
figuring out file moves and realizing that file A is no longer there, file B
showed up, but oddly enough is almost exactly the same as A was, and
assuming that B is really just A moved to B's location.

You may be able to use that to your advantage.
