Well that certainly would be much easier.
In principle, you could do "git log --follow -- file" and see the history.
That's basically the only thing that moving the history gives us. And I
suspect that it might be convenient for people who like to right-click on
things and choose "Log" from the menu.
It does create a lot of noise in "git log" though.

Not if you didn't know what the original repo was. :-)
